It's no problem at all, Free Sangha has been bookmarked,  it's a drop down list on my browser.

Ok, you guys beat me to it, but here goes:

I use to find it through google but now I have the URL memorized so it is really easy.
 ;D :cheesy: ;D :cheesy:  ;D :cheesy:


FS: as good and is imperfect as its members.

It isn't for everyone and some people have moved on.

On the Heybai Dharma Index it gets 3 1/2 our of 5 possible stars.

What no "stars" smileys????

Make that three stars.

Nice to keep in mind:

The site is owned and moderated by people who volunteer their energy, time and money, and who for the most part have full-time jobs, and young families to care for.  This necessarily means the site sometimes has to come in second (or fifth) on a day's duty roster.  All in all, I think these folks have provided a venue, care and service which has already been a great benefit to many people living in far-flung places. 

OK, I talked myself in to four out of five stars --

It's the page my browser opens to.
Warning: I'm enough of a fundamentalist Tibet style Buddhist to believe that for the last 1,000 years Tibet has produced a handful of enlightened masters in every generation. I do not ask that YOU believe it, but it will greatly simplify conversations if you understand that about me. Thanks.

Hmmm... I think this poll is rigged. I opened this thread, and it automatically selected the first option as my choice*. I actually send FS hate mail, daily.  :cheesy:

*It might be a browser thing.... Accessing from my iPhone.

Seeing that my payment was received today, I must point out that I find Free Sangha absolutely marvelous, wonderful, erudite and simply the best on the web.

Are all hedgehogs Theravadan?
