I just had to laugh ....

.... when I noticed the statistics at the foot of the homepage:

" Most Online Ever: 155 (Friday 25 December 2009, 12:04 PM)"


So Christmas day I guess a lot of meditators and Buddhists were searching the web :)

I also noticed that statistics and smiled for different reason.
I recall what OSHO said somewhere that the days are not far away when East has to go West to know Dharmma.

Joydip,

I think that day is fast coming - or even present.

Unlike the East, in the West the Dhamma is a living meditation based tradition mostly for lay practitioners. In the East the Dhamma is mostly faith followers who do little or no meditation, attending Vihara's or temples for ceremonies and giving offerings hoping to earn better Karma.

In the Dhamma,
