The newsletter scheduled for Sunday April 26, 2015 was completed but the newsletter delivery engine failed to work. The Internet tells me that cron jobs from low traffic sites like howtopracticezen are simply ignored. So I got into my control panel and ordered a newsletter delivery for every Sunday from now on and if I got the command (wget -delete--after http://www.howtopracticezen.com/wp-cron.php) right, the newsletters will finally become regular. My next job will be to fix the forum since it has no Reply box.
This site offers a unique ten step course on how to practice the Buddha Dharma, not limited to the Zen school, and includes a novel approach to Zen koans. The full website is accessed through the navigation buttons at the top of this page or by clicking on the five rotating photos above.
