My address, an email address I’ve been using since 1995, no longer works.  This is because my long-time web host, Datarealm, decided to pull the plug on the domain.  My new email address is  Some of my friends have been calling me 欢喜菩萨 (“huan xi pu sa”, meaning the jolly bodhisattva), so I thought “jollybodhi” seems kind of appropriate in a fun way.

This change also impacts my Buddhism website, which used to be at, but is now at  I honestly have no idea what to do with the website now.  When I started it in 1995, it was one of very few websites on Buddhism in the world and a key pioneer of Dharma on the web.  It was, at its time, the only website in the world presenting Buddhism in a highly personal and practical way with a generous touch of humor, which I think made Dharma a little more accessible to all.

And then life sort of happened to me, I moved to America to become one of those stereotypical overworked immigrant dotcom engineers, became a parent and, on the way, got distracted by other ways to serve the world, such as writing a book, creating Search Inside Yourself and co-founding Stanford CCARE and all.  During that time, the website got seriously neglected.

Today, the website is just one of very many Buddhism sites on the web, once a prominent global pioneer, now just some forgotten old guy sitting alone at the corner of a nursing home reading the New York Times on a rocking chair.

The question is, what do I do with it?  What is its next calling in life?  I have no idea.  If you do, let me know.
