DharmaNet's Gateways to Buddhism is an online clearinghouse for
Buddhist study and practice resources. It is home to Dharmanet's own
in-house databases and collections, as well as providing links to all
online Buddhist resources, large and small. This public service is
coordinated by DharmaNet International and is
funded entirely through donations.
DharmaNet offers this www/ftp site freely in hopes of helping Buddhists
and other interested individuals around the globe to find Dhamma teachings
and teachers, to help support Dhamma centers in all traditions, to promote
dialogue and communication, and to help build a vital and cooperative
online Buddhist community.
We can't operate this site without your help.
If you know of any resource that should be included here, or if there are
suggestions for ways to improve our service or interface, please contact us. Your feedback is much appreciated.
Just as important (but more difficult to ask for) is financial support.
DharmaNet is, and will always be, a free service, offered as Dhamma dana. If you or your organization find this
site useful, and our vision worthy of support, please consider helping in
whatever ways you can. Any offering, large or small, is significant and
helps this work to continue and to grow. Thanks!
DharmaNet needs your help!
DharmaNet began in 1991 as a grassroots organization, hoping to help
make the Dharma readily accessible to anyone, anywhere. When someone is
looking for a Buddhist resource, DharmaNet is one of the first places they
look. Unfortunately, people do not consider the necessity of supporting
DharmaNet. DharmaNet has bills to pay; it needs people to do the work of
maintaining and keeping information timely; it needs to be supported. Over
the years, DharmaNet founder Barry Kapke has kept this important resource
alive, funding it almost entirely through his own funds and doing most of
the work of maintaining it himself. It has become an overwhelming job for
one person and I need your help if DharmaNet is to continue to be a
lighthouse of Dharma.
I have created online forms to allow people
to submit information in a uniform format. However, I still have to
manually cut and paste all of the information that comes in to create the
listings. I am certain this process could be automated so that information
can be input in a more timely and efficient manner. I don't know how to do
that, however. If anyone can help with programming such a task, that would
be of enormous benefit.
Your help and generosity in other ways is also needed and appreciated.
If DharmaNet is worthy of support, please help
however you can.
