If your website is showing to some as 'unsafe'...

Thu, 8 Oct, 2020 - 09:53

This from Dhammamegha:

Faith, Health Care, and Dying – Some Points from a Buddhist Perspective
This is an article from Dayasara at Ipswich Buddhist Centre, looking at issues of health care and dying from a Buddhist perspective.

Geographical diversity of Buddhism
Sri Lanka, Thailand and Burma preserve the ancient Theravada form, with its characteristic yellow robed monks. The relatively later-developing Mahayana form(including Zen) is associated with Japan and China, Hong Kong, and Tibet. People from immigrant communities practising the religion of...
