I hope that you will be interested enough to buy Buddha Magic Issue 3, the project needs more support and more readers still to ensure its survival. If the Project survives and proves workable, then Buddha magic Ezine will be a major contribution to my financing of the Sak yant foundation Project, which now has various Monks and Ruesi masters willing to join in on the comittee and be master of Ceremonies and give teachings at the Ashram of the Foundation.
