Lions Roar : July 2006
SHAMBHALA SUN JULY 2006 9 ONE MORNING while eating breakfast I woke up to the power of the World Wide Web. After many months of planning and setbacks, the idea of launching a new website for Shambhala Sun had become truly surreal. There was nothing to look at, nothing to interact with, only empty promises from programmers. All we had was a visualization, and even that was fading from my consciousness. Then on March 28, during my usual breakfast tour of the Web, I bumped into the all-new www.shamb- halasun.com. Our pro- grammer had flipped the switch during the night and there it was, live to the world, a page loaded with articles and arresting im- agery, including the bodhi- sattva Kuan Yin who graces the cover of our May issue. What you do on the Web can stop your mind. In a single moment, in seem- ingly unbounded space, you make a move, a single selection, and up comes a visualization—something you’ve never imagined. The reflection can be any- thing—lovely and enticing, detailed and informative, or freakishly weird. All this to say, the Shambhala Sun has launched a new website! We are pleased to present readers with what is probably the richest offering of dharma available on the Web today. At www.shambhalasun. com you’ll find a treasure trove: an archive of nearly every feature article and interview published in the magazine since the late nineties. It’s all accessible, un- abridged, and offered to you at no cost. To be fair, the Sun website has always provided a rich and unrestricted archive. But now it’s better organized and easier to locate. With the “Search Ar- chives” tool, you can browse our entire archive by au- Editorial: The Sun Shines on the Web thor, title, date, or keyword. To recall a particular Sun issue, search within back issues and look for the cover image and date. I think the “Spotlight” pages are where the new site really shines. Here we’ve collected the works of the Sun’s most popular authors and teachers, includ- ing Pema Chödrön, bell hooks, Thich Nhat Hanh, and the Dalai Lama, as well as resources on How to Meditate and a wealth of information about the Zen, Tibetan, and Insight tradi- tions of Buddhism. I think that overall these are the best collections of teach- ings and essays on these topics available on the Web. Please recommend them to anyone you know who is looking for teach- ings by one of these great teachers or information on these Buddhist traditions. I wouldn’t be the associ- ate publisher if I didn’t mention those pages where you can subscribe, give gifts, renew, and pay your bill online, as well as find out about advertising opportunities in the print magazine and online. It’s all there and, hopefully, ob- vious. Go to “Find a Center” in the Sun’s Network directory and discover how you can add your medi- tation or yoga center to this searchable database. Enough talk about websites. Please turn on your computer, come visit the Sun’s site, and send us your feedback. I hope you like the reflection and that it stops your mind.
