Lotus in the Woods:  Hanmi Buddhism in Minnesota

Lotus in the Woods is here to share Hanmi Buddhism with Minnesotans and with all who are interested in learning life-changing meditation practices.  

Living Buddha Dechan Jueren is Hanmi (Chinese Esoteric) Buddhist School's 49th Great Master and Lineage bearer.  Additionally, he is now also the 47th Great Master and Lineage bearer for the most recognized Zen School in China, the Linji Chan School  and the 16th Lineage Holder of the renowned Zhaojuie Monastery.

Living Buddha Dechan Jueren founded the Dari Rulai Temple in Los Angeles, CA on December 11, 1998 as the seat for Chinese Esoteric (Hanmi) Buddhism -- which embodies the complete teachings of the Mahavairocana Buddha passed down by Vajrasattva and Nargarjuna Bodhisattvas to Subhakarasimha, Vajrabodhi, and Amoghavajra.  

Esoteric Buddhism teaches methods so that the practitioner can, with this very body, become enlightened; with this very body, attain awakening; with this very body-- while you are still alive--become a Buddha.  Naturally, before one can attain to buddhahood, one must first attain to humanhood.   That is, one must truly attain to being a real human being who respects all, who helps all, and who looks for nothing in return; just like this great earth, which nurtures every life unconditionally.
