Tell us how you think the forum can be improved. We will listen.
There are some sites that offer free Dhamma books, I wonder if might be worthwhile to pin a thread somewhere with some links? Many of the books are available online, of course, but I like to order books and then pass them on to the local library in hopes they'll find their way into hands that might not have otherwise stumbled upon them. Maybe that's silly in the google age! But perhaps we might also get some revenue headed back to the sites that offer such a great service, too.
Just a suggestion, and thanks for all you do.
"The serene and peaceful mind is the true epitome of human achievement."-- Ajahn Chah, Living Dhamma
"To reach beyond fear and danger we must sharpen and widen our vision. We have to pierce through the deceptions that lull us into a comfortable complacency, to take a straight look down into the depths of our existence, without turning away uneasily or running after distractions." -- Bhikkhu Bodhi

If you've got anything to add to the...Theravada Resource Guideviewtopic.php?f=13&t=3012
... let me know and I'll add them there.
Blackbird has handed ownership of that guide to DW staff to update.
If you have asked me of the origination of unease, then I shall explain it to you in accordance with my understanding:
Whatever various forms of unease there are in the world, They originate founded in encumbering accumulation. (Pārāyanavagga)'We should not congratulate someone on the success of their misdeeds, but on the contrary should endeavour to advise him or her to lead a more skilful and wholesome life. If such advice is ignored then we can only give up and let go' - Phra PanyapatipoDharma Wheel (Mahayana / Vajrayana forum)

Should others contribute links on this thread also? Or is there a better place to do so?
I guess since I'm already posting, here's one for Thanissaro Bhikkhu's Handful of Leaves books:http://www.sati.org/books.html
Vayadhammā saṅkhārā appamādena sampādethā.
