Monk on the Loose


I visited the Bhavana Society Therevadan Buddhist Monastery in Hampshire County, W.Va., this past weekend, way back in the West Virginia hills. The abbot, Bhante Gunaratana — known far and wide around the world as Bhante G — likes to take daily strolls up and down Back Creek Road, waving at passing pickup truck drivers and other vehicles. They wave back.
