A blank slate

I recently deleted all of my old blog posts.

I did this because I want this blog to be devoted solely to the teachings of the Buddha. I am not such an expert in these teachings, but I love them.

I was thinking that a wonderful hobby would be to record audio-books of Buddhist literature in the public domain, and make them available here. This is a long term goal, but it is something I'm working on. I may also do this with other public domain works that I feel compliment his teachings. The poems of Wang Wei spring to mind here, but I'm sure there are many possible works that fit into this category.

I am googling Buddha's quote " Moon Freed from clouds and click on your page. Though only one page, still I would like to give you a big and many claps of my hands for your start. I believe for what you are going to do, many sentient beings will be benefited. Their mind will by enriched. Thanks for your compassionate heart. _/\_

Thank you for the kind comment.

I am really looking forward to this project! I think I will begin with the Dhammapada.

If there are others who would like to contribute to this project, please let me know. It would be nice to have many different recordings available.
