→→→→ vertical line TOPIC: CHINESE BUDDHIST ENCYCLOPEDIA
vertical line Posted on Jan.04.2013 @ 05:33AM EDT by chinabuddh
Participate an international Buddhist project!
The Chinese Buddhist Encyclopedia ( http://chinabuddhismencyclopedia.com/ ) is a large scale and vast project with numerous different aspects and purposes:

1) provide easy access to vast amount of materials for everyone with access to internet
2) create a platform for Mandarin and English speaking Buddhists to interact, co-operate, work and study together
3) gather all available existing digitized materials, review them, categorize and post them online.
4) collaborate with relevant universities, monasteries, institutions, libraries, museums and individuals from around the globe
5) continue digitizing more materials
6) use the advantages of modern technology to develop different forms of Buddhist education (both on and offline)
7) create a international team of specialists interested in those topics, who would collaborate and meet on regular bases

We are looking for volunteers for following positions:

Translators- that applies to people who are fluent in English and Chinese and who could help us with translating letters, texts and documents.

Editors- the Chinese Buddhist Encyclopedia project needs a lot of data research and editing. Usually every editor has their own Buddhism related topic(s) (English and Chinese speakers)

Advisers- people who have strong Buddhist background and education are welcome to join the team

If you think you want to participate then please visit our website http://friends-in-dharma.com  for more information.

vertical line Hmmm..
Drop the red squared background, keep it pure white or something that makes the website "light/easy" - simplistic.
Drop the slideshow with prayer flags. Find better pictures to illustrate "Chinese Buddhist Encyclopedia" etc.
Make the shop more separated/unique than the rest of the front-page, have a picture of the incense with price and possibility of ordering it there and then online, do the same with the artwork and drop the "we pray for you flag thingy item"


(Was going to write "by not trying to help:)")
