In a patch of woods tucked off a Bolivia road, the monks are building teepees. Each one is formed from a few of the spindly pines that fill their 22 acres. In a few months, they will be guest accommodations of a spartan sort.


In June, the Wat Carolina Buddhist monastery, the only temple in Southeastern North Carolina, will host a three-day annual conference, drawing about 100 monks from all over the country.
