A brief history of the origins of this site

Long story short: this site was created by importing about 1000 Buddhism related articles from Wikipedia. About 100 of the imported articles were articles that User:Dorje108 had developed as a Wikipedia editor. The reason for starting this new site was that we reached an impass on Wikipedia--we had different views with the other editors on Wikipedia on how these articles should be developed and we were unable to reach a consensus.

So we decided to set up a new site so that we can develop these articles as we see fit.
