As a true interfaith gift, a Mahayana Master gave the property that the Theravada monastery was built upon:
The first monastery in the United States to be established by followers of Ajahn Chah, Abhayagiri was founded in 1996 in the mountainous forests of Mendocino County, California. The origins of the monastery can be traced to Northern California visits in the early 1980s by Ajahn Sumedho, Ajahn Chah's senior western disciple. In 1995, Venerable Master Hsüan Hua, the founding abbot of The City of Ten Thousand Buddhas (CTTB) in Ukiah, offered 120 acres of CTTB-owned forested property in Redwood Valley.

The recent fires surrounded but only singed the monastery. Dhamma protectors kept it safe!
