Links to Pages on Asia, Buddhist Studies, and Tibet
A list of links that I have collected and found useful over the years. They take you to major WWW sources [including a number of metapages] relating to the study of Asia, Buddhism, and Tibet. The links relating to Buddhism include links both to academically oriented sites and to sites maintained by practitioners of Buddhism. The links relating to Tibet also include links to sites concerned with the ongoing oppression of the Tibetan people in their homeland and to their struggle for freedom.
 
Buddhism and Buddhist Studies
Conie Neal's list of on-line resources - including web, gopher, and ftp sites as well as usenet news groups and discussion lists - some relating to the practice of Buddhism and to discussions about Buddhism, others strictly academic in nature.
