Re: Breakdancing monks

Re: Meteor strike in Russia

Re: Shortage of Pali Canon (English Wisdom translation) books?

Good question... they probably don't sell very high numbers (compared to their best-selling books) of copies, so they don't try very hard to have always enough copies in stock.

I have long hair, and it's probably less work than shaving to wash it every few days and take the scissors and trim the lenght, every few m...
