    Theravadan monastery in Washington State

    Found this article interesting, as I am in Oregon, not too far from this monastery.

    That was a very pleasant article. It makes me wish I was there feeding the monks and hiking through that beautiful forest. Thanks for posting.

    Thanks for sharing Lisehull, it is good to see that traditional buddhism can spread into the most capitalist of countries where everything is normally measured by the monetary return.
