The following Buddhists sites have been awarded the ARIL Hot Site designation
as offering among the best resources on the Internet.
Buddhism Network Simple, but clear and informative presentation about
a strain of Japanese Buddhism going back to the twelfth century. The lotus flower
image at the top of our Buddhist list is from this site.
School of Buddhist Dialectics. An ambitious effort to bring the texts
and traditions of Tibetan Buddhism to the Net. From the preface to these pages:
"We are--more or less--the first virtual college of Buddhist philosophy and
practice to grace the Internet. Our web site is our attempt to share our interests
in Tibetan language and Tibetan Buddhist philosophy with the cyberspace community
(all sentient beings throughout time and space)."
Nhat Hanh Exemplary use of the latest HTML features, including sound and graphics
to present the work of this Buddhist monk, poet, peace activist and leader of
a monastic community in the south of France. These pages illustrate the state
of the art in website design.
Monastery and The Institute of Buddhist Studies These pages contain, among
other things, an interesting article, "The blessings of cyberspace,"
which makes provocative reading for anyone curious about whether it is possible
to practice faith on the Internet. This site is a major source of Buddhist materials
on the Internet.)
International Research Institute for Zen Buddhism From Kyoto, Japan, this
site purportedly contains the largest collection of primary Buddhist texts on
the Net. While we have not searched the entire Net to verify the claim, given
the rich array and variety of materials here, that may very well be an accurate
description of the wealth of resources to be discovered here.
of Buddhist Ethics A scholarly journal that exists exclusively on the Net.
This is not the electronic version of a journal that existed first in print. In
the opening pages of this site there is a compelling argument for why this publishing
strategy makes sense.
Buddhist Resources Assembled by the folks who brought you the Journal of
Buddhist Ethics. This site contains a straightforward listing of literally hundreds
of websites together with gopher, ftp, mailing list and newsgroup addresses. A
goldmine of information.
Buddhist Review The interactive forum of Tricycle: The Buddhist Review.
This is the electronic website put up by the publishers of the leading Buddhist
publication in America. By contrast with the Journal of Buddhist Ethics, this
site illustrates how electronic and print publications can exist side-by-side,
the one reinforcing the other.
Houston Chronicle Interactive's coverage of the Tibetan sand painting exhibit
at the Houston Museum of Fine Art (This site represents the successful alliance
of modern technology, art, and ancient religious tradition. It illustrates how
the religions of the world can find expression in new as well as traditional forms,
one alongside the other. You'll want the RealAudio player to fully enjoy this
