Our Buddhist Temple located in Chinatown, Las Vegas, and is a place of prayer, meditation, learning and a refuge. If you have been curious about Buddhism, Taoism, or Native-American spirituality, the Lohan Spiritual and Cultural Center is home for meditation and education.

As Buddhism spreads westward many people are seeking alternatives to traditional Western religion. Buddhism is not a religion but an understanding and pathway to enlightenment, and a very personal relationship with your self through meditation and learning. The Lohan Spiritual and Cultural Center is a very welcoming and friendly way to start your journey, or continue your search for enlightenment and spirituality with a very well educated staff of Priests and Abbots. We offer many classes starting with an introduction class up to advanced levels, all are welcomed.

Our Abbott is Dashi Steven Baugh, also known as Dashi Chuan Sheng Shakya. The Lohan Spiritual and Cultural Center is 70% Buddhist, 20% Taoist and 10% Native American in philosophy and practice. Our lineage allows each member to explore their personal spirituality. We have many tools and processes available to us, and few restrictions. We are a mixture of three different lineages of Buddhism:

Chan (Zen) Buddhism of the Hsu Yun OrderHanmi Buddhism under Master Yu Tian JianTibetan Buddhism under Dzogchen Khenpo Choga Rinpoche.

Our Taoist lineage is from Master Share K. Lew of the Complete Reality School. The Lohan Spiritual and Cultural Center is a multicultural organization. It is not necessary to abandon any existing spiritual practices or beliefs, as long as no sentient being is harmed.

The Lohan Spiritual and Cultural Center operates as a headquarters of spiritual growth and education for the Las Vegas and Southern Nevada area.

Our Mission: To work with all positive religions, learning the principles, philosophies, and spiritual traditions of all faiths and cultures.

The Buddha Path: The Five Basic Foundations

Needs a location

Come learn about the fundamental principles of Buddhism! A series of classes centered on the teaching of H.E. Dzogchen Khenpo Choga Rinpoche, a Tibetan Vajrayana Buddhist Meditation Master. Have you always been interested in the Buddhist philosophy but you are not sure where to start? Have you been practicing Buddhism for a while but you don’t quite understand the fundamental principles of Buddha Shakyamuni’s teaching? If you are interested on learning about yourself, why you or other beings suffer, what True happiness is and how it can be achieved, this is the right program for you. By understanding simple concepts such as karma, reincarnation, and the power of your thinking, you can gradually but steadily transform your life. During these challenging, chaotic and overwhelming times you have a great opportunity: to examine your emotions, psychological states, anxiety, stress, relationships, livelihood and other areas of your life that may need some work and transformation. These simple but powerful teachings will give you the tools you need to break through any stagnation, confusion, and may help ease depression, since the teachings of Buddha are the best antidote to all negative thinking and suffering. All levels of practitioners are welcome including newcomers. This is an ongoing series that will build on previous classes. Out of compassion and safely for all we are meeting on Zoom at this time.
