Florida's a big state, what part?MattyNottwo wrote:Does anyone know of a Pureland Monastery or Center in Florida? We have a Vietnamese Monastery, but I think they are mostly practicing Zen.
Are you close to South Miami?
Vietnamese Pure Land Temple
Pure Land School
South Miami, Florida
If that's not the one near you, you may still want to check out the Vietnamese Monastery near you anyway.
The Temple I go to is Vietnamese & has a big Bodhidharma statue in the shrine room - they teach T'ienT'ai, Pure Land, and Zen (Thien).
Vietnamese, Chinese, and Korean traditions can be very syncretic within the greater classification of east asian Mahayana - with no strict dividing lines.
So I'd recommend checking out any of those 3 around you and there do appear to be a lot.
If you're looking for Japanese Pure Land, you may want to try:
Brevard County Buddhist Fellowship (seems to have multiple entries, also Buddha Gaia: Brevard County Chapter)
Address: meets: Unity Church, 1745 Trimble Rd Melbourne Titusville FL 32796

There's also the buddhanet directory:

Hard to give you better advice without knowing more specifics.
Hope that's enough to get you started.
