Precepts of Lotus Temple


  1. Ahimsa — we avoid hurting of any living forms as much as it is possible. We eat nothing but vegan food, we keep Ahimsa in mind with each action. We are careful with our speech and thoughts towards others and ourselves, we avoid consumerism and remember that there was nothing what was not given to us, so we can not claim anything as our own. We speak the only Truth — when it does not lead to suffering of others).
  2. Nature — we consider Raw Foodism as powerful practice what nourishes our bodies and minds. We welcome different kinds of Raw Foodism, but we remember that the highest form is Fruitarianism with respect to seeds. We live simple ascetic lives, avoiding civilization as much as possible, we are ecologists, freegans etc. — in different environments we live in balance with Nature.
  3. Three Treasures — we carry our life force, divine energy and sexual energy (Qi, Shen and Jing) as Three Treasures, we explore Tao and other ways not to waste them, such as martial arts, spiritual and psychick practices)
  4. Void — we remember, that in the end all dharmas and phenomena are empty, we should not be attached to the Precepts, but they lead us to the end of all existence in the world of impermanent phenomena, what is known as Satori.
