California Tendai Buddhist MonasteryAt the temple (http://caltendai.org), one can have seclusion for the
practice of meditation, fire ceremony, ascetic practice, liturgies,
waterfalls, and mountain circumambulation, with a vegetarian regime and a
Mahayana Bodhisattva rule. From this unwordly life, one travels outside
to the world and its people, for their happiness and their benefit.
Through altruism, one transforms suffering into enlightenment. Details
