Dear Brent, your site has so much material, I don't know if you have time for a correction. The listing and information for "Buddha Zendo" should be as I had it corrected on Buddhanet.net and the name is actually "Buddha Dendo." Thanks much

Thanks so much, Keisho! I've updated the entry from "Buddha Zendo" to "Buddha Dendo." Very kind of you to point that out. Best regard, Brent
