Build Iowa’s First Buddhist Nunnery

A local buddhist nun, Venerable Hong Yang, is working to build Iowa’s first Buddhist nunnery. I have known her for several years and she is an active member of the community. She gave me the refuge ceremony when I became a Buddhist. I hope to see this built as I think it would be a wonderful resource for the community. The campaign is on Indiegogo for the next 72 days. Please take a look.

    Hey! I work for Stowaway Magazine and am currently writing an article about going on a Buddhist pilgrimage. Would you be willing to share your experience with me for the magazine article?

    Thank you for your time,
