Unable to sign in to the sister DWs

For the last several days I have been unable to sign in to the other DWs. I cleared the browser cache and can't remember my password. :oops: When I try to reset, either my username isn't recognized or an email is supposed to be sent that I never receive. :tantrum:
Please advise.

Re: Daily Practices?

Re: One Truth

Alex, this has always been a question I wanted to ask. Do Shaolin monks learn both martial arts and Buddhist philosophy or are those separate sets of monks .. some learn kung fu and others learn philosophy? Do some of them know how to do a one finger hand stand and also how to reach 5th Jhana (I am...

Re: Doubt

No_Mind, You are realizing that a win or loss in cricket is not as earth-shaking as you once thought. Congratulations!

Re: Orthodox mystics

What is a merciful heart? It is a heart on fire for the whole of creation, for humanity, for the birds, for the animals, for demons, and for all that exists. By the recollection of them the eyes of a merciful person pour forth tears in abundance. By the strong and vehement mercy that grips such a p...
