The Monks Arrive
When the monks burst out of their white van at The Cathedral Center in the heart of Echo Park, they were greeted by the Rev. Dr. Gwynne Guibord and also by the Venerable ManKuang of nearby Fo Guang Shan Hsi Lai Buddhist Temple. Ven. ManKuang serves on The Guibord Center’s Advisory Council. This Chinese Buddhist community of faith and service brought warm greetings and welcome hospitality to the burgundy-robed men. They were part of a larger interfaith welcome that would uphold the monks with joyful hospitality throughout their time in Los Angeles.
Everything was finally in place.
