Purple Lotus School
- Purple Lotus School (PLS) is a non-profit private Buddhist school dedicated to educating its students on healthy living and teaching the ways of Tibetan Buddhism to its community and students.
- Located in the heart of Union City, California, PLS strives to use education as a vehicle for enlightened living; students are challenged to think mindfully and they often reflect on life’s obstacles in an effort to build character.
- Through Vajrayana Tibetan Buddhism, our school emphasizes an environment that promotes the belief that happiness and peace is not an attainable goal, but rather existent as it is.
- Enlightened living mentioned above is to realize that we have control of our own lives, whether it is our physical, spiritual, or mental state.The vision for Purple Lotus School is for students to take their education and skills from school and be able to apply it to not just their own lives, but in their interaction with the world around them.
- May there be peace for you and all those around you. Om Ma Ni Padmi Hom.
