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. :)
“Delighting in existence O monks, are gods and men; they are attached to existence. they revel in existence. When the Dhamma for the cessation of existence is being preached to them, their minds do not leap towards it, do not get pleased with it, do not get settled in it, do not find confidence in it. That is how, monks, some lag behind … (It. p 43)”

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:
