I got a follow-up nudge in email yesterday and thought I would post it here for anyone in the neighborhood who might have some interest ... a prof talking tomorrow about Buddhism south of the Mason-Dixon line. I'm going out of curiosity. Here's the p.r. for it:
"Dixie Dharma: Regionalism in American Buddhism," a lecture by Professor Jeff Wilson (University of Waterloo). Professor Wilson will discuss the importance of regionalism as a category in understanding Buddhism in America by focusing on a multi-denominational temple in Richmond, VA.
