Time to start looking for a Temple or Wat
I have decided that over the next while I will research, visit, and hopefully find a temple I can call the one I attend. Reading books, watching videos on the internet are educational, but even a monk in the forest has a teacher. Requirements will be simple. English Dharmma talks, and equal treatment of all. Some of the Temples here in Vancouver cater more to a specific ethnic group. Also No further then Richmond, Burnaby or New Westminster. There is a Theravada community in Aldergrove, but that will require driving over 1 hour each way. That would go against my Environmentally friendly beliefs. I am a believer in non consumerism, however I am not quite ready to go back to living in a cave, or under a tree.
