BuddhaNet has been servicing the Buddhist community on the Internet now for nearly 20 years. So I hope that with your support we can continue on in 2012 and beyond. During the past year we
have been generally upgrading the site and have moved to a
new virtual server. We are gradually adding new content within
our limited resources and have been updating the whole site
to improve the navigation and ease of use. While BuddhaNet
was one of the first Buddhist websites on the Net, we are
not resting on our laurels as we aim to continue to expand
this service for the benefit and welfare of all!
This collection of Buddhist Digital Resources on BuddhaNet brings together a representative selection
of Buddhist electronic resources from all the traditions. This will help to make the Buddha’s teachings more
accessible and a valuable research tool and guide for students and those interested in the Buddha’s Dharma
ongoing project at BuddhaNet for the past three years or so
has been the Buddhist
eLibrary, which now includes substantial Chinese and Thai
language content. Shortly the eLibrary will include Spanish
and Portuguese content and we would also like to include the
main Asian and European languages as well.
we invite Buddhist organistions and/or individuals to contribute
digital content such as PDF documents, Audio as MP3 or Videos
as Flash files to the eLibrary.
organisations are invited to join the Buddhist eLibrary on
a partnership basis - please contact the Buddhist eLibrary's
we have lost the sole sponor of Buddhanet - a Singapore
temple who helped us for many years.
While we are grateful
for the previous support it has left us financially in difficulty!
if you wish to help to keep this service up and running,
please consider a donation towards the cost of maintaining BuddhaNet, thank you.
appreciation / Ven. Pannyavaro (BuddhaNet's webmaster).
The World Buddhist Directory Database
World Buddhist Directory database has been upgraded to a
new server which greatly enhances the search functionality
and provides a range of statistics on Buddhist organisations
world-wide, as well as speeding up the addition of new entries
and making any changes to existing ones.
we are working on a iPhone app for the World Buddhist Directory,
which we hope to have up and running soon.
We ask Buddhist organisations and centres world-wide to
check their directory listing/s for accuracy and/or come
up with new listings in their locality. This is a service
that will benefit the growth of the Buddha Dharma world-wide
- please help us to help you. The World Buddhist Directory
is a free non-sectarian service supported entirely by donations.
