Last Monday, the community of Abayagiri monastery has been evacuated.
The last update on the website is from Tuesday morning:
Update 8 pm October 10:
A neighbor reported that the monastery buildings were OK as of the afternoon of Oct. 9. The fire is still active, and we don’t know the state of the buildings after that time. It is unsafe to travel on Tomki Road, and there are hard closures approaching the monastery from both directions. We plan to update the website as we hear more information.
Yesterday, Ayya Sudhamma shared the following post of Facebook:
California wildfires monasteries: Looks like as of early this morning Abhayagiri Buddhist monastery, the monastery of excellent monks associated with Ajahn Chah, was still standing. (The monks have been evacuated and are safe.) The monastery is located on this map in the valley below the word “Resources” and just above the red blocks showing heat of fire.
Does anybody have more information about the monastery?
