Buddhafolk ETSY

This is a badge linking by ETSY shop where I put handmade Dharma items and some donated vintage items in an effort to raise funds for monastics to help them with the 4 requesites, most of the current emphasis is on providing shelter during these tough economic times, this is brand new and I hope you visit the shop to purchase something to help out very kind and generous people.

Monastics listening in first council

2010 Western Buddhist Monastics Gather at Vajrapanni

This was a great time, with dharma puppets from Rev. Heng Sure of the City of 10,000 Buddhas and Bhikkhu Bodhi’s chipmunk.  We had lots of laughs at this conference and much sharing of personal stories. Gourmet chef cooked our meals with vegan fare and we had the wonderful support of very kind laity who rotated shifts just to participate and they were just sweet and wonderful! It’s a breath of fresh air to have many Americans actively involved in the traditional 4 fold Sangha, so well trained in Buddhist etiquette and culture, it was so evident by their conduct! wonderful place, wonderful people!
