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

"Buddhism in a Nutshell" Part XV covers topics on "The Place of Origin of Buddhism-India" and "The Historical Buddha-Shakyamuni". These topics serve as an introduction to our presentation on the development of Buddhism.

"Zen Story" continues with the Sixth story, "Psychic Power Is Worth a Penny". In the section on "Diamond Sutra", we present the commentaries on Chapters 20, 21, 22 and 23. "Wisdom and Compassion" is the sixth topic in the series "Good Question, Good Answer" by Ven. S. Dhammika. In the section "Dharma Dew", Miss S.H. Kong wrote an article on "Internal/Worldly Success and External/Spiritual Achievement"

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 "Wisdom and Compassion" 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 May.
