Portland, OR, Febuary 2007.
Dharma Drum Mountain Buddhist Association in Portland, Oregon started six years ago. Since then it has grown steadily with the active engagement of Li Guocun, convener of the community. She has devoted herself to introducing younger generations to the teachings of Sheng Yen, starting study groups and meditation classes. Recently the community acquired a permanent homestead with the generous donation of a house by Li Guocun.
The Purification Ceremony for the new premises held in February was attended by Venerable Guo Chian, the guiding teacher of Dharmapala from New York, as well as the Venerable Guo Shu, abbess of our Vancouver Chan Center. They provided guidance in furthering programs of study and meditation instruction.
