Temple Construction Fund

With the purchase of our new Temple, we are happy to have the opportunity to do some updates to the meditation hall. There are many more areas of the building that need some attention. Please help the community build and maintain the new building by putting a few dollars (you can pick how many after you click the button) into our fund for this very special project.

Resident Monk Expenses Fund

People need to eat, yes even monks. They also need have a roof over their heads, heat, water, and maybe even some shoes to wear. The resident monks at the Blue Lotus Temple rely on the kindness of people so they can continue their mission. Please spread some of your kindness with the button below.


If you would rather donate some tangible objects, the monks have put together the following list of things they would like. Anything you can help with would be much appreciated.

Bathroom supplies


Please don’t be shy about submitting any questions or concerns you might have.

Where Most Needed

The buttons above have incorporated most of Blue Lotus’ most common needs, however there are always various things we need to accomplish and we can’t make a button for each of them so we have the following super button that will serve all those purposes at the same time.
