In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.

"Upon entering the Amitabha Foundation for the Sunday gathering at ten o’clock in the morning I noticed colorful prayer flags from the facade on the front of the house that distinguish it is a center of Tibetan Buddhism culture in Rochester’s east side. Entering the house I was greeted by the director of the center, Frank Howard. My first instructions were to take off my shoes and place them in a closet. He gave me two books titled “The Thirty- Seven Practices of Bodhisattvas” and a “Prayer Book”. He directed me to a closet where pillows are located and indicated that members usually take two, one to sit on and one to place the books on in front of them."
