I have been reading up on Tibetan Buddhism and feel that Mahayana path is where I need to be. I want to take refuge, but I live in central Arkansas and don't know of any Mahayana temples anywhere near me. Does anyone have any suggestions for me? Can I just recite the vows to myself, or do I have to go to a temple and talk to a priest?
Thank you for your guidance and please forgive me if I've worded some of this wrong. I'm on a break at work and have had to hurry to write this.
