Google Saffron - Theravada Search Engine

but now... :ugeek: .......... (continued next post)

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. :)

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" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Also this may have some original material - http://www.empty-universe.com/emptyuniverse/index.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Not well arranged but - http://www.tipitaka.net/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

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

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

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/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; - Mahasi Sayadaw oriented.

FWIW I like the "Saffron" name.

Some of them have survived at http://www.reocities.com" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;, some at http://www.oocities.com/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;, some at http://web.archive.org" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; , like:
