As the title says - anyone local to this area? I've just started learning about Buddhism and it *seems* that Theravada is the one for me. I'm trying to find out if there are any local resources open to me in the area that I may not know about. I visited a Mahayana temple this past weekend and, while informative and very welcoming, I just don't think it's the branch of Buddhism that I wish to follow.
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.” - Cormac McCarthy, The Road
Learn this from the waters: in mountain clefts and chasms, loud gush the streamlets, but great rivers flow silently. - Sutta Nipata 3.725
