Seeking the Lotus began in March 2004 as a forum for exploring issues of spirituality as it intersects with personal and political issues. Because I identify with Buddhism, most of the content has a Buddhist flavor, although submissions from other people will come from different traditions. This page gives a summary of each issue thus far published, number of pages in the issue, and the price of that issue. If you are interested in an issue, you can buy it through paypal, follow the links to the distros, or e-mail me at TinuvielDancing at
