Good Morning and Blessings Everyone.
I have a couple of general questions. If you can direct me to a site that has most of the answers that would be great. Or if you have the time to answer them here. EVEN BETTER
1. I have seen on various sites that Theravada Monks (usually those that are considered temporary monks) are married and have families. What is the teaching of this. I further notice this usually happens with westerner's traveling out of their native country say to Thailand to accomplish this. Can a westerner accomplish this at a Theravada monastery in their own country? US?
2. Where I live (close to Moscow, ID) Are there any centers/Monasteries anyone can point me towards?
Thanks in advance for your help and info. Take care.
