Ancient Teachings, Awesome Websites

As this presentation of the German website Dhammaregen that was held with the Tilorien Monastery iSangha found quite a nice resonance, Ven. Vimala and myself decided to organize more presentations of websites that facilitate studying the Suttas and compiled the following program:

https://www.samita.be/en/2021/06/28/ancient-teachings-awesome-websites/

Studying the Suttas is rewarding and nourishing. It inspires love, faith, patience, forgiveness and devotion and helps with meditation practice as well as navigating everyday life.
There are some amazing online resources available for studying the Suttas but sometimes it can be daunting to find your way through the maze of the internet and many awesome websites have useful functions that help with studying.

The first session will be on the 18th of July with Venerable @Khemarato.bhikkhu on his website “The Open Buddhist University”, 2021-07-18T08:00:00Z.

Please visit the Samita website (posted above) for registration.

The next episode of “Ancient Teachings, Awesome Websites” will be on Friday this week, 2021-09-10T17:00:00Z—starting with chanting 1 hour earlier.

This time, Venerable @Vimala will give a presentation of SuttaCentral and Voice.suttacentral.net in English language. Although these two websites are well known and quite popular, not all users are familiar with all options that these sites have to offer. The purpose of the presentation is to show the less known aspects of the functionality of the sites.

If you don’t have the meeting details, you can get them here.
