Lotus Center in Tibetan Buddhism
At 815 Park Ave in Rochester the Immanuel Baptist Church sits, a towering Tudor Revival style church with historic properties that earned it a spot on the national registry in 2002. When you first step in the church, you see signs of many different groups that use the space like AA meetings and self-help groups, and also the White Lotus Center, a Buddhist group that follows the traditions of the Drikung Kagyu lineage of Tibet.
As I’ve stated many times, our blog is mostly an introduction to places we visit, and we try to include a bit of history about the particular belief system to provide some background. There is no possible way I could do the story a true justice in a few paragraphs of how Buddhism came to be one of the largest religions in the world, with different lineages, different depictions of the Buddha, and of course, the history of Tibet and the turmoil it has undergone with the Chinese government. Quite frankly, many origins of the different lineages are confusing to me, so I shouldn’t be the one to tell you about them anyway! By all means, read on, but don’t let this blog post be the only story of Buddhism you ever read, since I’ll be glossing over a lot of fine details. In addition, I’ll start right off by apologizing for the length of this entry. Extra points for you if you read all the way to the end.
