Do Not Visit the Monastery

Please do not visit the monastery at this time. If you haven’t heard the good news yet, as of Tuesday, October 17, the Abhayagiri community will be returning to the monastery property. However, the monastery is not yet open to public. There are a number of checkpoints along the roads inside Redwood Valley and the law enforcement officials will turn away any non-residents.

Latest Reflection

Yashodara
Reverend Heng Sure
October 20, 2017

Prince Siddhartha had a wife; He loved her like he loved life. She was fine, and she was fair, And when he said goodbye, he said to her. Yashodhara, look at where life leads; Yashodhara, I’m going to try to get free.

Yashodhara, look at where life leads; Yashodhara, I’m going to try to get free. Like you, I never heard an old man sigh, I never knew that people die; Like you, I never heard a sick man moan, I learned this body ain’t my home. Ya...
