    A French website

    Hi all,

    Just to let you know that I am currently working on a French website, a simplified version of treeleaf, offering a very convenient platform to access teachings and offer on line practice. Thanks to the help of my beloved student Shohei, this is about to become a reality in the coming few weeks. The place will be named: l' ermitage de la montagne bleue, which means, but you have already figured it out, the Blue mountain hermitage, Seizan An. I would like to post vids in French, offer gentle interaction between members and facilitate communication with this side of Treeleaf. I shall also translate some of my Bro s teachings as well as pointing at suitable practice places in the West, as, some of you may know, not every temple or community offer a balanced and reliable teaching. The idea is also to provide a source of inspiration and also a warm shelter for all the lone wolves that have been kicked out or simply decided to walk out of intolerant practice places.

    Hi Taigu,

    As you may know, I make a living being a freelance web designer. I offer my costumers visual communication products as well as web hosting.

    Part of my service as priest is to give free web hosting and blog design to non profits and bloggers in exile.

    Let me know if you need web hosting, domain name or web design... or all of the above.

    I would love to help you in your project. It would be an honor.

    Good luck on your new project.

    Gassho,

    Kyonin

    Taigu,

    As Shohei likes to say, "This is awesomesauce!"

    I think this is a wonderful thing that will undoubtedly extend the accessibility of the Dharma.

    I only wish that I understood French; perhaps I will learn some.

    If there is anything I can do to support this endeavor, please don't hesitate to let me know.

    Gassho,

    Hello,

    I can only read a bit of French...I blame my seriously horrible (in terms of personality) teacher at school. However I'd be willing to sponsor a couple of bottles of red Pinot Noir.

    Very nice! All the more reason for me to learn French...though I can guarantee my accent will be atrocious. XD Spanish and French accents are quite different.

    I could speak a word or two in French when I was in my 20's. It will be fun to go there and see if I can pick up French again.

    Hi everybody!

    I ll shoot some vids i have done for Treeleaf, some poems and texts and teachings, plenty of new stuff too. I will also ask my italian-French student Dainin Joko to be a visiting guest and also teach from time to time. A former abbot of the Korean zen Centre of Paris, he has now joined again the good old Soto family and teaches actively in Paris. He has many students Europe, an impressive crowd of half a thousand birds. Here are some of his vids:

    Hi Taigu,

    Would he speak English well enough (I am assuming he does) to come offer a talk or two here, assuming you think it appropriate?

    We Americans naturally assume that all Europeans speak English and five other languages (while we Americans can't even speak English right!)

    Well, in fact, he probably does speak five other languages. It is just that they do not include English!

    Apart from the elderly people in southern countries, most Europeans actually do speak some English. Nevertheless it's a great initiative!

    Hearing the Dharma in your own language has a lot of advantages. Lots of nuance get lost in translation.

    Hello Taigu,
    Thank you forthe creation of the "Hermitage of Blue Mountain". I do not know if we are many Francophones at Treeleaf ... but I know I'll be more comfortable to understand all the subtleties of Dharma in my native language.
    I am also pleased to see the quality of exchanges on treeleaf appear in a French forum. Until now I have not found in this category.

    Hello Taïgu,
    Merci d'avoir crée "l'Ermitage de la montagne bleue". Je ne sais pas si nous sommes beaucoup de francophones sur Treeleaf... mais je sais que je serai plus à l'aise pour comprendre toutes les subtilités du Dharma dans ma langue natale.
    Je suis, aussi, heureux de voir la qualité des échanges sur treeleaf apparaître dans un forum en français. Jusqu'ici je n'en ai pas trouvé de ce type.

    Thank you Taigu for this great initiative! I'm a citizen of that complicated country called Belgium, Dutch-speaking but I do understand French rather well and I do speak it (less well - malgré mon nom français), so I'd love to join the Hermitage of Blue Mountain community...

    Fantastic! I only wish my mothers family would have continued teaching the children Cajun French. They stopped with my mothers generation, so they could talk without the kids knowing what they were saying. A short term benefit for them, but a loss for the rest of us.

    I peeked at the website today -- it is so beautiful. I understood nothing of what Taigu said, only heard the word "Treeleaf" and something about a... hat? Or maybe a bell. Best wishes for this wonderful new thing!
