      not my cup of tea

    Did a month long retreat here. Was not impressed. They promote themselves as authentic and also environmental. I saw pressure treated wood being burned, wet lands being damaged, and a blatent disregard for the precepts with alot of verbal abuse directed at people who dared to question the morality of any questionable activity. Ive been to buddhist monasteries befor and always found the monks to be compassionate and humble. Arrogence was rampant here. Just my experience...

I forget the truth
