] From whence came this web site? It began as one of the private message boards once hosted by Yahoo called 'clubs'. And like most good ideas among internet capitalists, it was abandoned at the height of it's popularity. At first this was an addendum to the Buddhapunk club but it is a good enough idea to survive it's progenitor. And with the demise of the Geocities sites Buddhapunk has been moved again. Most of these articles can no longer be found and have found a home archived here.

 These three new articles acknowledge current influences on Buddhism and confront the dark matter that can accumulate over long periods of time. Ancient concepts and practices can deepen and preserve Buddhism but some of them can also regress core teachings and create exclusion.
