Let The Dhamma Shine Forth

Assembling the material and writing it out has taking three years, designing the web site, checking and fine-tuning the material has taken nearly another year and now it is ready. A Guide to Buddhism A to Z aims to provide the reader with concise, accurate and wide-ranging information about every aspect of Buddhism – doctrinal, cultural and historical. Every month for as long as I can think of something to write about I will add a new entry. I may also supplement some of the existing entries. As of October there are 500 entries.
I would ask all my readers to let as many people know about A Guide to Buddhism A to Z and do anything you can to promote it. Anybody is welcome to reproduce the material without asking for permission; just give the link to the source.
The address to this new Dhamma web site is http://www.buddhisma2z.com/
Let the Dhamma shine forth!

I have also put a link to your Guide at flordenopal.org.
Please let me know if the way we published it needs to be changed in order to post it properly.
Thank you for all the work.

I have a permanent link to your "Guide" in my blog as well as in my "allexperts Q&A" a long time time ago.

I have just updated to your new Url.

Congratulations on your very professional new website!

I've put the link on Twitter, Facebook, various blogs including my own and informed everyone I can think of. People are overwhelmed at the breadth of information.

Here are some comments from Twitter and Facebook:

"AMAZING BLESSING - this is probably the best Buddhist resource on the net"

"it's all been given out 4 free - highly recommended"

"I just took a peek at it, and my reaction was on the order of "holy blinkety blank." That is *massive,* and impressive in terms of polish and nuance."

I just wanted you to know bhante how much all your work is appreciated even though you don't seek praise for yourself.

Sadhu!

Dhamma Wiki would not have gotten 'off the ground' were it not for Bhante Dhammika's permission / allowing me to print his entries over at my site.

The a2z site looks great! Love those Buddha images and colours.

I'm the one behind the "holy blinkety blank" comment, and haven't gotten around to expressing my appreciation and admiration here because I've been so immersed in it. This is magnificent work, and very much needed. I especially salute your patience for bringing it to this level of polish before publishing it.

Thank you.

Please delete this.
I would have e-mailed you but your e-mail is not listed.

Edit suggestion:
Your first sentence says:

"Assembling the material and writing it out has taking three years, designing the web site, checking and fine-tuning the material has taken nearly another year and now it is ready."

Better, perhaps is:

Assembling the material and writing it out has takEN three years. (PERIOD)

Designing the web site, checking and fine-tuning the material has taken nearly another year and now it is ready.

BTW, great job. Suggest you add an e-mail to your profile

Any plans to turn it into apps for the smart phones?

Suggestion:
Make a "Guide" icon so we can place it on our sites and link to Guide.
