WhiteLotus 8.jpg

A Buddhist sect (White Lotus ) founded by the great Master Hui Yuan about 390 A.D. at his monastery on Mount Lu in Kiangsi Province in China. The Lotus Sect believes in and honors Amitabha Buddha and declares that, through the chanting of his name and by purifying and finally ridding oneself of desire, one can be reborn in the Pure Land. There one is born of a lotus, and, depending on ones degree of purification and practice, one is born into one of the nine grades of the lotus: upper superior, middle superior, lower superior, etc.
