The Yun Hwa Sanghaof World Social Buddhism
Lotus Buddhist Monastery
The Lotus Buddhist Monastery (LBM) is the headquarters of the Yun Hwa Sangha. It was founded by the Supreme Matriarch Ji Kwang Dae Poep Sa Nim in 1993 and is located on Big Island, Hawaii. From there, Dae Poe Sa Nim teaches the practitioners in many ways. Three times a year (winter, May and summer) retreats of several weeks take place at the LBM, to which students travel mainly from Europe.
The LBM is located at a place of excellent energy, situated between the Mauna Kea and the ocean. It offers the purest air, clearest water and healthiest food. Visitors to the monastery therefore benefit from their stay in terms of health. Above all, however, in the monastery it is possible to penetrate extraordinarily deeply into Buddhist practice under the guidance of Dae Poep Sa Nim.
