The aim at Lotus Heart Sanctuary is to foster a strong community of people who love and respect our Mother Earth and all her inhabitants – an engaged community who will unite, stand together and speak out for social justice.
At Lotus there is no interest in trends, fads or examining dietary choices, the only interest is to advocate a complete compassionate lifestyle that will benefit our planet, human & non-human animals, and bring an end to all oppression.
Please use the Lotus Resource section to learn how to adopt and maintain such a lifestyle.
The Lotus Clothing & Merch store sells everything you need to communicate your message of peace, plant-based lifestyle, human & non-human rights, environmental issues & world hunger.
We sell everything from gym & fitness gear to t-shirts, mugs, hoodies, tote bags, coasters, key rings, clocks and greeting cards.
If there’s something in particular you would like custom made, let us know and we will endeavour to meet your wishes.
All our products are ethically sourced, printed in vegan ink & 100% NOT-FOR-PROFIT – all profits donated to Lotus Animal Sanctuary

This basic recipe makes great breakfast or dessert pancakes, sweet or savoury. If you want thicker pancakes - American or Scotch style - just reduce the liquid a little. Try using 120ml/½ cup each of soya milk and water instead of 175ml/¾ cup. It is easier to make something too thick and thin it down than the other way round!
Enjoy a lovely, healthy vegan take on this classic dish. It is quick to assemble but you do need to do some prep beforehand - read through the recipe and ingredients the night before and go for it!
