    Thank you Shokai

    Dear Shokai, thank you again for taking us gently through the 108 Dharma Gates. It has been a very special journey for me this year, as I've been noting the gates every day in my journal and they've shed light on the passing, often dark, days.

    This year, I subscribed to the blog and with this got them via mail every day, took them with me.

    Very much appreciated indeed. Thank you, Shokai, for taking us along the way.
    This year I've been following this closely like others did.

    Shokai, thank you for bringing the 108 Gates to us again. This year I could follow all 108 fo them. I didn't subscribe to the blog because I didn't wanted to receive more e-mails than I already receive, but I put it as my inicial page on my cell phone. It was the first thing I recited before getting up and the last before going to bed. Thank you ver much. I will miss the daily Gates.

    Yes, Shokai, much appreciation and metta to you. This was a nice connection through the season. Maybe we should have a gatha of the day go out to everyone!

    Thank you all for your kind thoughts. there are traditionally two more entries. Over the past seven years, I am amused evry time by the fact that there are 109 gates in The Shobogenzo appendix. So, I do the last Gate this evening and then tomorrow i write a sort of conclusion to it all. Further to that , last year I did a summer series on the gathas associated with each gate. If there is enough interest amongst you I'd consider doing that again. As well I'm entertaining thoughts of doing small thesis on some of the individual elements.
    So, watch for the last two entries and let me know your thoughts on the above proposals. It could turn into a sort of study series.

    Thank you Shokai . As a late arrival I "gatecrashed" the last dozen or so gates. I'd be very interested in any new series.

    p.s. What can I do with Twitter now...?
