And here is a page with introductions to various aspects of Buddhism from a variety of perspectives.

This site promises to be one of the largest Buddhist resources on the internet, with over 400 books, and 6,000 articles on it.

There is also material from the main World Religions, and Poetry.

Here is the Site Map.

The material on this site began as a Data Cd, and this free data cd is still being produced. We’re now up to version 2.0.6.
For those people who would like an updated version of the Cd, here is a link to the Downloads Page, with instructions on
how to download the entire contents of the site, and recompose it as a working Data Cd.

So friends, have a look and let me know what you think. Your feedback is very much appreciated. You could say this is still in
the ‘beta’ phase, so, in particular, if you find anything that doesn’t work as it should, please let me know and I’ll try to fix it.

I’m grateful for every bit of support and encouragement I’ve gotten from people over the years. It’s been instrumental in this work.

If you like this website, and think others might like it too, please tell your friends. Feel free to forward this message, or post a notice
anywhere you think would be best. If you go to a Buddhist Center, or a sitting group, live near a college, or go to a Buddhist event,
you might like to consider putting up a message.

Finally, if you have any other ideas how I can let more people know about this, please let me know.

Thanks again, and I look forward to hearing from you,

All the best from Taipei,
