The Buddha’s Face Complete Blog Index
July 2011 Part 5
The blog is being updated it would seem almost hourly as I scour the web for the weird , the wonderful and the most amazing and inspiring articles about the Buddha and Buddhism from around the web. The process is now a have a dramatic image to illustrate the article, the body of the text with appropriate links out to relevant sites or other articles in the blog, an inspiring and relevant quote (often by the Buddha or the Dalai Lama – but increasingly to increase the variety other authors as well) and a well chosen video from You Tube or occasionally Vimeo). The stats for the blog have reached an all time high with daily views in the 300 – 400 mark.
