Re: Meditation/Lineage Diagram

I built an alternate version of Travis' diagram using a software called GraphViz ( http://www.graphviz.org ). The graphviz graph representation separates the presentation (layout, etc) from the relationships, so on one hand it's much easier to fix and update the information and on the other hand the...

Re: enable e-mail notifications

An alternative would be to enable the generation RSS or Atom feeds (and with a little effort you can make those reach you by mail anyway).

Re: emails/subscriptions yet

I like the idea of email subs.
I second that.
But it's wonderful to have the forums as they are now anyway, off course.

Thanks...

I know amaravati is on retreat, but I don't think all of them are
I tried with Amaravati, as you guessed :thumbsup:, and supposed that with the others would be the same. I'll try with another one. Thanks again!

Mario, Planning and preparation...for what?...if you want to stay at WPN, just get yourself a visa and go...if you're earnest, and convey that earnestness to them, they won't turn you away...

need a little help reaching wat pah nanachat

Hi! First a little context: after much planning and preparation some days ago I sent a letter to the Guest Monk of Wat Pah Nanachat asking to be able to visit them, as instructed in their website.

Re: Google Saffron - Theravada Search Engine

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...

But that has two problems: it's a bit less tr...

Hi everyone. Since some time I been thinking that having all the messages of the forum saved as e-mails in my hard drive would be very handy: - No need to have an active internet to be able to browse over the latest messages or search some old thread I'm looking for. - Much faster search and retriev...
