This site has been around since before the millennium, previously as Dang Zang, and before that simply as chagchen.org. The internet has changed since then, hasn’t it?
Before Google, a list of interesting websites you got from a friend was a valuable resource, but the number of websites has mushroomed – and so has has the rate they come and go. A mere human can no longer keep track, even in a small niche.

So a rethink is underway. I’ve just left a few blog posts that have drawn attention in the past – the one about euthanasia, for example, still gets looked at a lot. They are under “Old blog”.
“Quick guides” now has its first page on some good (and bad) reasons for becoming a buddhist. People do want to know how to become a Buddhist, or how to BE a Buddhist for that matter, so a page on words to know to bluff your way as a total beginner is coming soon.
“Articles” and “Gallery” are still just temporary stubs – bear with, bear with!
