"He, the Blessed One, is indeed the Noble Lord, the Perfectly Enlightened One;
He is impeccable in conduct and understanding, the Serene One, the Knower of the Worlds;
He trains perfectly those who wish to be trained; he is Teacher of gods and men; he is Awake and Holy. "

--------------------------------------------
"The Dhamma is well-expounded by the Blessed One,
Apparent here and now, timeless, encouraging investigation,
Leading to liberation, to be experienced individually by the wise. "

What's the Buddha's view on Native Americans. Why aren't there any Native American monks?

I don't get it, how is this different from the 'negroes' thread?

Hello friends,

na·tive/ˈnātiv/
Noun: A person born in a specified place or associated with a place by birth, whether subsequently resident there or not.

a·mer·i·can/əˈmerikən/
Noun: A native or citizen of the United States.
Adjective: Of, relating to, or characteristic of the United States or its inhabitants.

So, a "Native American monk" is simply one who was born in the United States, no?

Abhayagiri:
Ajahn Sudanto
Ajahn Karunadhammo
Ajahn Gunavuddho
Ajahn Jotipalo
Caganando Bhikkhu
Thitabho Bhikkhu
Cunda Bhikkhu
Kaccāna Bhikkhu
Thitapañño Bhikkhu
Kovilo Bhikkhu
Pamutto Bhikkhu

Amaravati:
Ajahn Sumedho
Ajahn Jayanto
Bhikkhu Ahimsako

Wat Metta:
Ajahn Thanissaro, and as I recall all but one or two of his monastic students are American by birth.

So, that's a start.

Metta and Anjali,

Perry

He turns his mind away from those phenomena, and having done so, inclines his mind to the property of deathlessness: 'This is peace, this is exquisite — the resolution of all fabrications; the relinquishment of all acquisitions; the ending of craving; dispassion; cessation; Unbinding.'
(Jhana Sutta - Thanissaro Bhikkhu translation)

Could be that such a one wouldn't be likely to get almsfood, and this was the practical reasoning behind the prohibition.

The oldest Western monk in the United States is African American. His name is Bhante Suhita Dharma. For more information on him visit:
www.floweringlotusmeditation.org and click onto teachers. This center was founded by an African American and is the only Buddhist Meditation and Retreat Center in the deep South. Also view information on Bhante Buddharakkhita, on this site, who was born in Uganda and is a Buddhist monk.
