Dear Reader,

(including all its subsidiary (and/or sister) pages on "coombs.anu.edu.au" server) has permanently ceased its publishing operations on Friday 21st January 2011.

All of the online resources reported here have been thoroughly checked at the time of their listing. However, it is possible that, with the with the passage of time, many of the originally reported materials might have been removed from the Internet, or changed their online address, or varied the scope and quality of their contents.

Fortunately, in several cases it is possible to access many of the older versions of the resources listed in the MONITOR. This can be easily done via the free services of the "The Internet Archive" http://web.archive.org/, a remarkable brainchild of Brewster Kahle, San Francisco, CA.

- with warm regards -

TheZensite [Zen essays, teachings and book reviews]


www.thezensite.com, Sydney, Australia

"This is thezensite home page. Here you will find links to various materials about Zen. There are also some links and writings about non-Zen topics which may be of interest to Zennists.
The Zen essays page is heavily into academic essays about Zen. If you would like to read some non-academic texts, try the link to Zen teachings. I make no claim as to the worth of these Zen teachings."
