    Hi All,

    Welcome back, everyone, to our Forum ... the same as before, but different ... different but the same.

    Things are still a bit of CHAOS as we learn new functions and where things are. It is a very much like moving into a new house, but everything is still in boxes, we haven't put everything where it is supposed to go, and I can't find the can opener!

    Please bear with us and be patient these first days as we figure stuff out, get things organized and bring some new functions online.

    The first new feature I would like to introduce is a new daily thread called "Jundo and Taigu Recommend These Threads" today, containing threads that Jundo and Taigu encourage you to read. This is meant to help newcomers and people who have been away for awhile quickly find threads, teachings and discussions that we think deserve a look. Folks in the past complained that they could not find or tell one thread from another, and what was worth looking at first, among all going on. This new section should help point people to where to look first. Taigu and I hope to update the "hot topics" listed there every day or so. I encourage everyone each day to make the "Jundo and Taigu Recommend These Threads" section the first place you look when logging in here any day. HERE IS THE LINK:

    Also, a good first place to go each day is the "New Posts" tab found at the upper left corner of the Forum screen. That will take you to all new posts since your last visit.

    In the coming days, Taigu and I and our technical wizards will introduce other new features of this place.

    And to say it again ...

    Taigu and I wish to thank the people who have been working so hard for weeks and months on this ... tirelessly and selflessly through often long hours, donating their professional skills and expertise ... locating, mastering and installing the new software, designing and redesigning the user interfaces, solving 1001 technical problems that came up along the way, especially Chris (ChristhatisChris), Morelos (Kyonin/Choco), Dokan and Shohei. I would also like to thank the other folks who have been involved in several accompanying projects happening as part of these changes, especially Yugen who is involved in so many things, Willow and the rest of the members of the "Engaged and Charitable Projects Committee", the "TREELEAF 2.0 Committee" and "Sticky Committee", and our novice priests Mongen the film maker, Fugen, Shinkai, Myozan and Dosho who were involved all through providing input.


    Gassho, Jundo

    Hello everyone,

    I bow deeply to all those tech wizards who shared their precious time and skills with our Sangha (since they are part of it). Once more thank you.

    All the best and gassho,

    Very cool! Thanks to everyone for their hard work!!

    P.s. My email from the forums ended up in my Spam folder--might want to put a warning for people to check there on the main TL site.

    Excellent work!!
    Thanks and a big gassho to all the sangha members that made it possible…
    I promise to myself that the new look of the reborn forum 2.0, will serve to motivating me to participate a lot more…
    So I hope you will “see” me more around here in next time.
    Please forgive any mistake in my writing. Like in Zen, in English I am only a beginner.

    Took a while for me to figure out how to get in and am still "getting my sea-legs". There are a couple of places I cannot seem to get to...yet, and who says you can't return to your youth....I've once again become a "junior" member...who needs Grecian Formula

    The thing is that our language and our thinking is so primitive, so limited. My excitement may be totally different than your excitement. At age 65 and after practicing for well over ten years my excitement is much different than it was when I was young and enjoyed the excitement of being attached to new things and new people and new ideas. I can go and sit by a brook and experience a wonderful feeling of oneness and no-self. Maybe my feeling at thinking about how fortunate I am to have found my way here could be called excitement but it's nothing like one who is excited over a new car or a new lover. After we have studied and practiced we understand our emotions and our feelings and even while experiencing them we are detached from them to a degree. We watch our own feelings and emotions almost like watching a movie. We are free from them and they cannot cause us suffering. What do you think?

    With Metta,
