A Refreshing Spring in the Modern World

Meditation and Zen Buddhism help people calm their bodies and minds, relieve pressure and anxiety, and bring peace and insight into their lives.  As an outreach effort from Chung Tai Chan Monastery in Taiwan, Buddha Jewel Monastery opened its doors in Seattle in 2008, and is now located in Shoreline.

Lighting the Lamp

Signifies Enlightenment & Wisdom

Offering the lamp to the Buddha not only honors the Buddha, but also helps us to awaken our luminous Buddha nature. We may also dedicate the merits towards harmony in the home, peace in the world, and enlightenment to all. You can make a Lamp Offering in your name (or a name of your choice) for a period of one year (from Jan 1 until Dec 31, 2017) by making a donation. This is a great opportunity for us to clear away karmic obstacles, support the precious teaching of the Dharma, and honor the Buddha. Let us all participate in this illuminating and worthy endeavor.
