Hi all,
My name is Zack and I am sort of a misplaced Buddhist at the moment. I'm in Cuttingsville, Vermont, which is near Rutland (though soon I may be moving to New York.) Does anyone know of any temples around Rutland? Theravada would be nice, but anything would be okay. Has anyone maybe been to a place they can vouch for in the area? Otherwise just point me to an address, phone number, or website.
from,
Zack
Btw I'm 22, and I'm originally from New Jersey, where I lived most of my life.

Greetings Altar,

Can't help with your questions, but welcome to Dhamma Wheel!

:buddha2:

Metta,
Retro. :)
"When we transcend one level of truth, the new level becomes what is true for us. The previous one is now false. What one experiences may not be what is experienced by the world in general, but that may well be truer. (Ven. Nanananda)

“I hope, Anuruddha, that you are all living in concord, with mutual appreciation, without disputing, blending like milk and water, viewing each other with kindly eyes.” (MN 31)

Never again...

Hi Zack

Welcome! I grew up in Montreal, so have lots of fond memories of skiing in Vermont. I think you're lucky to live in an environment like that! But remember, it is the result of kamma, have to be grateful and careful not to squander the well-earned environment! Is it easy for you to avoid getting sucked up into wild weekends in Montreal in Summer???? I've got a lot to pay from my Montreal days.... :roll:

Metta,

Phil

Hi Zack,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel!

Here are some temples / centers in Vermont, but it is by no means a complete list. I am sure there are others:
