The Buddhist Information and Education Network. From the "about" page: "BuddhaNet™ is the result of a vision to link up with the growing world-wide culture of people committed to the Buddha's teachings and lifestyle, as an on-line cyber sangha. In this way, an ancient tradition and the information superhighway will come together to create an electronic meeting place of shared concern and interests. BuddhaNet is a non-sectarian organization, offering its services to all Buddhist traditions. It aims to facilitate a significant Buddhist presence in the ever-expanding realm of computer communications technology, applying this technology to helping make the Buddha's teachings freely available to all." Website contains links to Buddhist studies, a World Buddhist Directory, an online magazine and other resources. Window
From the homepage: "The pages of this web site were written for the students of my class on Buddhist Psychology. Although the religious aspects of Buddhism are discussed, I am far more interested in presenting Buddhism's philosophical and psychological side. It is not necessary to believe in heavens or hells, in gods, demons, or ghosts, or even in rebirth or reincarnation in order to benefit from the teachings of Siddhartha Gautama. I myself believe in none of these things, and yet have learned a great deal from the sutras -- far more than from any other source. I encourage all of you to become familiar with Buddhism, and I humbly suggest that these pages are a good place to begin!" Window
From the homepage: "This site keeps track of leading information facilities in the fields of Buddhism and Buddhist studies. This research tool is optimized for transmission speed, not for fancy looks. All links are inspected and evaluated before being added to the Virtual Library…The WWW Virtual Library (VL) is the oldest catalogue of the Web, started by Tim Berners-Lee, the creator of HTML and of the Web itself, in 1991 at CERN in Geneva. Unlike commercial catalogues, it is run by a loose confederation of volunteers, who compile pages of key links for particular areas in which they are expert; even though it isn't the biggest index of the Web, the VL pages are widely recognized as being amongst the highest-quality guides to particular sections of the Web." This site can also be used for research on other religions. Window
From the "about" page: "This site is dedicated to inspire and discuss practical elements of Buddhism. How to put the essence of Buddhism into practice. How to bring about real tangible benefits from the core teachings." The site contains many categories, postings, links, a blog, and archives.
