Profile Picture: "The Foaming Monk"
The Chinese characters are Fo (buddha) and Ming (bright). The image is of a student of Buddhism, who, imagining himself to be a monk, and not understanding the true meaning of the words takes the sound of the words literally. Likewise, People on web forums sometime seem to be foaming at the mouth.

It's a great resource that you're putting together. I want to meet this Ken McLeod of "Unfettered Mind" now!

Earth Dragon,

I can only congratulate you for the website. Great stuff! I hope you find Mandarin speaking members here who are willing to assist in this great project. You should know, however, that there are already lot of freely available info in Chinese on the web.

JKhedrup,

is surely an interesting teacher. :)
Myriad dharmas are only mind.
Mind is unobtainable.
What is there to seek?

If the Buddha-Nature is seen,
there will be no seeing of a nature in any thing.

Neither cultivation nor seated meditation —
this is the pure Chan of Tathagata.

With sudden enlightenment to Tathagata Chan,
the six paramitas and myriad means
are complete within that essence.

您好!

祝福您們的案子一切順利。個人的看法是:如果真的在找些講中文的佛教突的話,那麼就谷哥"佛教留言板"。其實,已經有很多,比英文多得很。有雙語能力者也不少。

慧峰 合十
