…A major goal of the Temple is to help fulfill the religious, spiritual and educational needs of traditional and American born Buddhists as well as all other religious denominations who are increasingly interested in learning and practicing Buddhism. The Temple is also a setting for practical training of monks who are learning to meet the unique needs of Buddhists living in America. Training of monks includes teaching how to communicate Dhamma in English and management of an American temple which is greatly different from managing a temple in traditional Buddhist countries.
…Our aim is to continue bringing educated monks for two years of practical training in America, then send them to other parts of the country where people are seeking qualified monks. For this we need support from generous donors. Please help as much as you can. Your contributions are tax deductible and infinitely exponential.
