Our mission is to promote individual peace of mind, compassion for all beings, spiritual growth, and an ethical way of life based on Buddhist principles.

Through loving kindness meditation and the development of mindfulness, we strive to enlighten individuals as to the cause of suffering, the path leading to the cessation of suffering, and an understanding of the true nature of our existence. Learn More...

Volunteer Opportunity!

Supporting our Blue Lotus community happens in many ways—time, talent or treasure.
I want to share this opportunity for you to support and promote this year’s Vesakha (Buddha) Day Saturday, May 11, 2013.
Once again, we will publish a keepsake program booklet to commemorate the event. This year’s booklet will include a Vesakha Day history; biographies and photos of the monastics; a history of the building that is now the home of Blue Lotus; contact information for the temple and all satellite groups; and an event calendar for the year. This booklet will be a keepsake from a unique event and a reference for people to use throughout the year for temple information.
I need your help finding advertisers for this Vesakha Day booklet!
The 2,000 copies will be distributed for free to everyone who attends, and after the event they will be put in newcomer packets and with other temple literature. This booklet will reach people in McHenry County and beyond!
If you know or do business with anyone who would benefit from promoting themselves to our large and diverse community, please speak to them. Let them know about this wonderful opportunity to promote their business or service and support us at the same time!

Some examples of businesses that may want to participate are:

*photographers *grocery stores *martial arts studios *counselors/therapists
*contractors *chiropractors *life coaches *restaurant/café owners
*dry cleaners *day care providers *tutors *yoga studios

Be creative! Reach out to those you know and help make this year’s booklet truly memorable.
Pricing information is on the attached Letter to Businesses.
Feel free to print copies of the Letter to Businesses and personally distribute them. Any questions, please contact David Schmidt at media@bluelotustemple.org. If you would like David to follow-up with any businesses, just let him know.
The deadline for ads is 03/31 so timeliness is critical. Thank you so much for your help in this project.
