Fortigurn,

I'm going to forgo suggesting that charity is not only for the religion and spirituality forum (a point I am sure you would agree with) by asking you to please add Taiwan SPCA to the list. They are doing some good and necessary work. I know some of the people involved and have been impressed with how much they have accomplished in the short period of time since their establishment.

Otherwise, a nice thread.

Yes, great thread. Thanks for putting this all together.
“Everywhere else in the world is also really old” said Prof. Liu, a renowned historian at Beijing University. “We always learn that China has 5000 years of cultural heritage, and that therefore we are very special. It appears that other places also have some of this heritage stuff. And are also old. Like, really old.”

Thanks for that, do feel free to add others. I agree of course that charity is not only for the religion and spirituality forum, and there's already a separate volunteer forum. However, it is a subject of particular interest to many here, so I decided to collect a few links and put them here. I wouldn't mind seeing this thread in every forum, but some people may consider that overkill.

Oh, I think we can overlook the multiple-thread issue, since it's for charity!
"The verbs used in the most important Pali Suttas on mindfulness – the Satipaṭṭhāna and Mahā-Satipaṭṭhāna Suttas (M no. and D no. respectively) – are assasati and passasati, i.e.’ inhale’ and ‘exhale’. The same verbs are used in the Kāyagatāsati Sutta and Ānāpānasati Sutta (M no. 118 and 119 respectively). Although the Ānāpānasati Sutta uses the nouns āna and apāna in its title, it reverts to assasati and passasati in the discourse itself. The author of this article should try reading the Pali texts cited rather than drawing inferences from the title of a single text. Had he done so, he would see that the Pali texts prescribe no such thing as farting meditation." --"Mr. Dangle," responding to Eisel Mazard on New Mandala
