I follow the teachings of Thai forest masters and have read the stories of some of the monasteries founded in Australia, the UK and in California. I was wondering what actions I could take to help create the conditions for a forest monastery in Colorado.
I guess the first step is to find people willing to invest in a large plot of forested land, the second to find such a suitable plot for sale.
"Whenever we feel that we are definitely right, so much so that we refuse to open up to anything or anybody else, right there we are wrong. It becomes wrong view. When suffering arises, where does it arise from? The cause is wrong view, the fruit of that being suffering. If it was right view it wouldn't cause suffering." - Ajahn Chah
