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.
Btw I'm 22, and I'm originally from New Jersey, where I lived most of my life.

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:

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:
