There's nothing wrong with being a beginner, or with asking basic questions. I've asked lots, and plan to continue doing so.

But lately we seem to have had some questions that, well, I'd expect people to be able to answer for themselves, with a little research.

So I thought I'd do a roundup of basic information sources. This is off the top of my head, so if other monks want to chip in with similar resources, then that would be peachy. ;)

Don't let this put anyone off from asking basic questions, please, or I won't feel entitled to ask them myself. ;) Just look in one or more of the above places, before you ask.

Cheers,
andy.

Update: turnstep's home node has loads of useful information about the monastery. (thanks arhuman).
