Between my own budding interest in Buddhism, a friend's ongoing practice and a relative's new one, I stumbled across The Buddhist Channel.
If you haven't already clicked on it from the sidebar, check it out. Very interesting news ranging from Myanmar Buddhists and their treatment to archaeological relics found all over the globe to books on the wide-ranging subject.
I'd love to read the one on what the Dalai Lama says Capitalism could learn from Buddhism, especially in light of Michael Moore's upcoming film (which I plan to see) and all that's going on in the world. The book, called The Leader's Way, is written by His Holiness The Dalai Lama and Laurens van den Muyzenberg.
Buddhist Thought for the Day: The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, worry about the future, or anticipate troubles, but to live in the present moment wisely and earnestly. ~ Buddha
