    March 2, 2018:  I realized that some of you may be using cell phones or other reading devices that may not show the side bar at the Discussion Forum.  So, you may not see the following information.

    I really would like everyone to participate in the discussions. I know some of you automatically direct questions to me as in the past. Please make sure not to do that and make it an open question, where anyone can answer.

    Also, please do not hesitate to answer others’ questions. We all make mistakes. I have corrected myself – or made the point in a better way– in old posts as I learn more. Trying to answer a question gets one to think about it.

    A list of new posts is updated at each time a new post is published:

    However, a Search done at the main site now includes relevant posts at the Forum, as well as posts at the main site.

    To provide a link to a post, please follow the following procedure.

    • Open the web page on a new browser window. Copy the title of the post and paste it in the posting where you want to put the link.
    • Now go back and copy the URL of the web page.

    • Come back to the posting, highlight the title and click the “link” button on the format panel.

    • A new window will open up and paste that copied link to the “URL” slot. Also, select “Open link in a new tab”, and click “Add Link” button at the bottom.

    This way, one reading the post will be able to open the post in question in a new window, so that he/she can go back and forth between the post and the web page in question.

    It turns out that Tobias G had tried tried 5 times to make a posting and he could not get it posted. Finally, he sent me an email and I was able see to that they were all there labelled “spam”. I was able to “unspam” the posting.

    This happened once to upekkha100 last week too. I was able to unspam it too.

    If anyone runs into the same problem, please send me an email:
    [email protected].

    That email address is working properly now. I had some problems with it initially.

    I may not be able to post for several weeks after the middle of this month, so I am trying to get as many posts as possible published before that.

    There have been some problems with the website for the past few days, and also with the discussion forum. While they are not major problems, they need to be fixed.

    We are trying to fix the problems. It is possible that the website may be put on the “Maintenance Mode” at some point.

    My apologies for any inconvenience during the past several days. There were no major disruptions for readers, but there were some issues with post editing. I had to get a new web-hosting company in order to resolve the issues. There should be no major issues and the website seems to load faster now.

    I will make one more new post before I take some time off. I have encountered an unexpected medical emergency (that is anicca nature). If I survive It, I will be back in several weeks.

    Much merits to Seng Kiat Ng, who has agreed to take care of the maintenance of the website and the forum. He will update on my situation. Please do not email me until I come back. I appreciate the kind thoughts of all!

    May the Blessings of the Buddha, Dhamma, and Sangha be with you always!

    From now onwards, the Forum should be functional and all users should be able to participate in creating a topic and reply to topic.

    However, the submitted comment/question may not show up on the forum for a few hours (this is a caching issue that still needs to be fixed). Please keep a copy and re-post if it does not register in a day.

    With metta, SengKiat
