Google Saffron - Theravada Search Engine

Postby retrofuturist » Tue Dec 30, 2008 10:25 pm

I used to use this search engine... http://s.billard.free.fr/dhamma/

but now... :ugeek: .......... (continued next post)
If you have asked me of the origination of unease, then I shall explain it to you in accordance with my understanding:
Whatever various forms of unease there are in the world, They originate founded in encumbering accumulation. (Pārāyanavagga)

Greetings,

After seeing that the above search engine has not been updated since 2006, I've decided to start my own, modelled upon the one above, using its search entries ( http://s.billard.free.fr/dhamma/dhammas ... isting.txt ) as the starting point...

Google Saffron
http://www.google.com/coop/cse?cx=00545 ... cbjbznmwso

Please post here any suggestions for sites you would like me to include in Google Saffron. Please mention only sites that are exclusively, or nearly exclusively Theravadin because if they're multi-sectarian (e.g. Buddhanet) then Google Saffron will no longer achieve its intended function of filtering out non-Theravadin references.

Metta,
Retro. :)

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Taṃ nadīhi vijānātha:
sobbhesu padaresu ca,
saṇantā yanti kusobbhā,
tuṇhīyanti mahodadhī.

The budsas main site has not been updated since 2004 and I cannot reach it anyway. How about this mirror http://www.buddhanet.net/budsas/ebud/ebidx.htm

Also this may have some original material - http://www.empty-universe.com/emptyuniverse/index.html

Not well arranged but - http://www.tipitaka.net/

So is that what we are calling this collection? Google Saffron?

Me thinks we need a better name. Maybe that just me though. :tongue:

That's what it says when you click here:
http://www.google.com/coop/cse?cx=00545 ... cbjbznmwso :tongue:

I'm open to renaming it... to give some context, Google Saffron is a slightly cheeky reference to Google Chrome, the Google-made web browser.

Metta,
Retro. :)

Geocities.com does not exist anymore since a few days ago, so some of the sites you reference are now innaccesible. I hope someone has backups of them! Everything is impermanent, isn't it? :thinking: Thanks...

Another great site to add: http://www.vipassanadhura.com/ - Mahasi Sayadaw oriented.

FWIW I like the "Saffron" name.

Some of them have survived at http://www.reocities.com, some at http://www.oocities.com/, some at http://web.archive.org , like:

http://web.archive.org/web/200501190434 ... index.html

I have recently updated the links of the Sadhu! directory and found some of them.
