Should the people of a Sangha be welcoming?
There are two temples in my town. A Thai Theravada temple that has been around since the mid-eighties and a Vietnamese temple currently in construction. I'm going to visit both to get a feel of which feels more natural. When I feel ready, I want to join one.
I know people are different and no two temples are the same, but, generally, should the people of a Buddhist community be welcoming of those who wish to join? Especially if the seeker is not of the temples ethnicity?
