FreeSangha Member Survey 2010
« on: November 20, 2010, 02:04:43 am »
We've been around for a year now! There's always room for improvement so we've put together a short survey to find out what you think of the forum. Answer a few questions and get a chance to win nice prizes! All answers are confidential and negative answers won't affect relations in the forum or one's chances to win the prizes. Among the participants, two lucky persons will be drawn randomly and receive one of the following:

  • A 4" Amitabha Buddha statue
  • A "Medicine Buddha Dharani" CD by Imee Ooi.

The survey is completely anonymous but if you want to join the prize draw, you will need to enter your username (or email) at the end of the survey so we know who to contact in case that you win.

The survey is here: http://www.freesangha.net/survey/index.php?sid=63193&lang=en

Thanks Laura!  ;D

I'm thinking we'll close the survey on Friday Dec 3 and draw the winners during the weekend. If anyone wants to know what Imee Ooi's Medicine Buddha Dharani sounds like, I have an embedded youtube clip on my user profile. It's very soothing and definitely helps against road rage and other agitated states. :)

If you enter your username or email, I am the only one to have access to them and I assure you that if I call I'll give you a very good price!

I'll probably compile a report about the improvement comments to share with the rest of the staff, but I won't reveal to anyone who have left which comments. Hopefully the results can help us to improve the FS experience for all of you.

As I stare at the bunny with a pancake on his head, my mind flips upside down. I want to say something, but words escape me. All things have conditions, but no condition could produce a bunny with a pancake on his head. The unconditioned? I will go on a long retreat now, and meditate on bunny-with-pancake-head as my object...

I think Bunny is a very practical-minded pilgrim.  It is hot, approaching the noonday sun.  Bunny fears sunstroke, and has covered up appropriately.  Later, around dusk when temperatures dip, Bunny will be hungry after a long day's pilgrimage.  Voila!  the pilgrim's sugegasa becomes Bunny's dinner.   Bunny eats and rests.  Tomorrow will bring more journeying on Kobo-Daishi's temple trail, and the kindly minshiku host will prepare a new head-covering-cum-nutrition for the footsore Shingon Henro bunny.
 :)

I hope that adds to the survey.

The Henro Bunny ponders --
"I am 'two together'
Kukai guides and protects --
Always beside, before, behind, ever alert."

Osettai comfort and enrich,
To give is to receive,
Accepting all, in humility, the Bunny
Journeys from Ryƍzen-ji to Fujii-dera --
