I feel I should apologize to my friends and the people who have subscribed to this blog. This year has been a difficult one for me. Among other things, my mother passed away, and after returning to Taiwan I found myself jobless. I've just recently found new work, but unfortunately I never heard back from my contact in Dharma Drum Mountain. In the small town I live in, there is only one very small Buddhist nunnery, and the last time I went there and explained what I wanted help with, I was treated in a very curt manner. I would like nothing more than to be able to finish my translation of Ven. Jinghui's commentary on the Heart Sutra, but at present I'm not able to. I need to explore some other avenues of help, and will keep everyone updated.
Many sincere apologies.
