Diamond Mountain's aspiration to become a fancy resort sounds like the antithesis of Buddhism and rather more like the misguided efforts of the bourgeois. From DM's own website: "We intend to continue expanding DMU retreat facilities in a Spanish Colonial motif, similar to that of resort facilities in the area, such as the Royal Palms in Phoenix, or Sedona’s Tlaquepaque Center (at right is a photo of the Palms). Our design and administrative teams have already begun work on this effort, the goal being a highly comfortable, “white sheets and oversized pillows” (but still very inexpensive) air-conditioned, retreat experience—with a paid staff that is highly trained in traditional Tibetan retreat arts"
