Thank you for your continuing support in viewing the eighteenth issue of our Internet Magazine, "The Buddhist Door".

"Buddhism in a Nutshell" Part XVI covers topics on "The Beginnings of Buddhism". These topics are continuation of our presentation on the development of Buddhism.

"Zen Story" continues with the Seventh story, "You are correct too". In the section on "Diamond Sutra", we present the commentaries on Chapters 24, 25 and 26. "Good luck and fate" is the seventh topic in the series "Good Question, Good Answer" by Ven. S. Dhammika. In the section "Dharma Dew", there is an article on "Commentary on the reportetd Mass Suicide in America" which is a translated reprint from the Third Edition of the Lin Kok Buddhist Journal.

Acknowledgement for the sources of some contents: The English translation of the Diamond Sutra is taken from "A General Explanation of the Vajra Prajna Paramita Sutra by Dhyana Master Hsuan Hua", published by the Dharma Realm Buddhas Association, Incorporated, San Francisco, California. The section on "Good luck and fate" is taken from the book "Good Question, Good Answer" by Ven. S. Dhammika.

We hope that you enjoy this issue. We also would like to hear from you any comments or suggestions

We look forward to seeing you again in June.
