End of Dhammapala newsletter
With a mixture of regret and relief we announce, that the annual Dhammapala newsletter has reached the end of its lifespan. Ever since the founding of the monastery in Konolfingen in 1988 a regular newsletter has been published, even up to two/three times a year. Initially it had a very simple appearance on photocopied sheets, then over the years it underwent various changes in style and became an appreciated means of communication.
The main reason for stopping the newsletter isn’t because of changes in the latest technology (even though this does play a part). It is mainly due to the annual workload of writing, multiple translating and printing layout. This all became far too time consuming.
With the launch of our new website – including the novelty of an English section – we expect to be in touch with our network of friends and supporters with informations about the monastery not only once a year, but also during the year. We hope that these changes will find positive resonance amongst our present kalyanamitta (spiritual friends) and those to come in the future.
