What is GuruSoul?



GuruSoul is a not-for-profit venture which intends to provide free resources for people who are on the Buddhist path by exposing them to thoughts and views from around the world. These resources will be in the form of quotes, articles, essays, books, videos, movies and anything else that the online sangha decides and is possible within the limitations of this blog.

My name is Jagdish and I am a recent entrant on this path and not some Guru! In the past I have been a teacher of Mathematics at various levels and in various countries. I have also been a student at some of the most prestigious educational institutions in India and the US of A, and continue to study Buddhist thought and philosophy at the university level. However I depend heavily on online resources for my education and this blog is an attempt at creating a library where we can share our resources and thus help each other along the path. All the resources on this blog have been collected from the public domain on the internet and some are part of my private collection.

Feel free to scroll down the sidebar on the right where you will find the various categories under which the resources are collected. Go ahead and check out the resources within any category and give me your opinion. You will find my contact info under the “contact me” link at the top right corner of the main page.

I do not intend to monetize this blog through any advertisements and will vigorously avoid spam. However, you are encouraged to donate (dana) to GuruSoul and you will find on the right sidebar, as you scroll down, a “Donate Now” button which you can click and pay either through Paypal or through your debit/credit cards. Your donation will be used to pay for maintaining this site and other charges associated with keeping the domain name. FYI, It costs around USD $125 per year to keep this site up and running. Anything in excess of $125 will be donated to Animal Welfare organizations as mentioned in one of the posts titled “Donation for GuruSoul” which you will find on the right sidebar under the category “Donate please” ————————->

I consider this blog to be part of my seva or selfless service. Do join me and share your merits.

With much metta,
