Namaste! Welcome to The Golden Lantern
This site is dedicated to the spirit of Buddhist and Taoist poetry. Please stay awhile and enjoy the work of poets who aspire to enlighten and engage.
Our journey through this life is marked by suffering, yearning, and the occasional glimpse of profound joy. As the karmic wheel turns, our commitment to enlightenment grows deeper. We hope the poetry on these pages inspires your journey.
We are constantly seeking new voices and invite you to submit your own Buddhist poems or Taoist poems, be they haiku, tanka, or any form you can imagine. If they invoke the wisdom, clarity, and joy of Eastern thought, we'd like to see them.
We also enjoy letters from our readers, so send us a letter and let us know what you think or fill out our feedback form and tell us a little about yourself. If you'd like to exchange links, please visit our Links page.
Read more about The Golden Lantern on our About page, and be sure to check out a new letter From the Editor every month.
Finally, if you are interested in advertising on our home page or would like to learn about our eBook and print publishing services, please visit our Commerce page.
