Zen spot #141 — Mindfulness, meditation and the eighteen most durable Buddhist blogs June 9, 2018 00:00
All Buddhist blogs must die
While death finds us all, it seems to find Buddhist blogs in numbers greater than their sum total. My personal pursuit of inspiration and understanding uncovered dozens of broken links, years of inactivity and inexplicable redirection to car dealerships, cookie recipes and fashion retailers. And, while I believe that reading can only take one’s practice so far, it is a critical part of walking the path. In particular, the following sites and blogs offer exceptional resources.
I hope you enjoy each as much as I do.
