Blue Lotus Buddhist Meditation Center (BLBMC) is a small meditation community located in Florida. We offer meditations and other classes to promote inner peace and compassion for all beings. BLBMC has the support of working monastics, originally from Sri Lanka, who are now building a Buddhist practice on Florida’s suncoast. Based on Buddhist teachings, such as the Four Noble Truths, their teachings are methodical, logical, practical, and scientific. Meditations focus on the practice of loving kindness (metta) and mindfulness (sati).
We encourage you to look at our calendar of events to explore Buddhism from a number of disciplines and facilitators. Take the approach that makes sense to you. Because we are currently “homeless,” we also rely on several venues for our gatherings. Most events are available online. We welcome both those who are new to the practice and those who have experience with meditation. We invite you to join our sangha activities to learn and grow with us.
Blue Lotus Buddhist Meditation Center (BLBMC) expects to build a new center in the Venice, Florida, area. By building its own facility, it can be more available to the Suncoast that is curious about Buddhism and its way of living. The center is to provide Buddhist teachings, fellowship, community services, and access to meditation. Current support comes from the generosity of people who value what we do. Any donation- financial or service work- is greatly appreciated. Financial donations are directed to our building fund after operational expenses are deducted. At this time, we are an all-volunteer sangha. We are so very grateful for the generous support of our friends. Please contribute however you are comfortable in assisting us. BLBMC is a 501(c)3 charitable organization. Donations are tax deductible. Tax Exempt Number is 35-2365405.
There are different ways you can make donations, such PayPal or checks can be mailed to PO Box 2162, Venice FL 34284. Learn more about how you can help HERE.
