:thumbsup: Thank you for that link!

Las Vegas is number 7 !!!!!!!!!!!

:woohoo:

We should get an even higher rating here in Vegas; after all we have Brahma here, Mandalay Bay, Tao night club (okay, maybe not for the Tao night club) but the Brahma statue is a big attraction and the Manadalay Bay casino has a "Buddhist" theme. And Steve Wynn is a Buddhist.

I like San Diego. I lived there 1998-1999. You can't beat the San Diego weather; about 70 degrees all year, fairly sunny and the Pacific ocean / beach too. I didn't realize there were that many Buddhists in San Diego.

I wonder why Honolulu is not on the list? It probably should be #1. They probably only checked the stats for mainland U.S.

I couldn't help noticing the similarity between their map of the US and the election maps we've seen so recently ... most-Buddhist lines up pretty neatly with the Democrat-voting states.
Obviously not just because of the Buddhists, but to do with openness, pluralism ... good things like that.

Buddhism is very prominent in the Bay Area.

On the U.S. map there is a part of Colorado in the south-central area to southwest that is showing over 5% Buddhist. Does anyone know what made that happen? I know Shambhala Mountain is pretty popular and big, but that is up in Northern Colorado. I imagine it must be another big Vajrayana center, but not sure.
