Congratulations on the 50th Anniversary of the Buddhist Association of the United States.
Putnam County is honored to have the renowned Chuang Yen Monastery within its borders. Located in western Kent just off our scenic and historical Hudson River Turnpike, Route 301, Chuang Yen Monastery enjoys a prominent place in the Buddhist world and attracts visitors from around the world.
We look forward to additional interaction with the Buddhist monks and nuns at Chuang Yen Monastery as we celebrate our Year of the Senior Citizen here in Putnam. I encourage all of our residents to visit this beautiful monastery and to enjoy the tranquil beauty of its magnificently landscaped gardens and grounds.
Again, Happy 50th Anniversary to the Buddhist Association of the United States.
