Free Full Moon Day Retreat (Jan 20)

Bhante, Los Angeles Buddhist Vihara; Ashley Wells, Crystal Q., Wisdom Quarterly

What if a Sri Lankan Theravada Buddhist temple in Los Angeles were to open its doors for a free one-day retreat? Would there be incense, monks in saffron robes, candles, a free lunch based on rice and curries, and lots of explanation of what the Buddha taught? This is the tradition of Bhikkhu Bodhi, the famous American Buddhist monk from the east coast who translated the major sutra collections and studied in Southern California before heading off to Sri Lanka in search of enlightenment. All are welcome.
