This is more than a simple listing of new contents added to this site.
It contains commentary, some desccriptions of sutta content, sutta-specific outlines, essays, and explanatory tables, occasional essays on difficult Dhamma related subjects and occasional inspirational quotes from the suttas and elsewhere. In sum it is a good curiculum for Dhamma Research.

There you are then, Beggars! I craft this counsel for you:
The own-made is a flighty thing, I say
get yourselves out of this sputtering madness!
Beggars! The best course does not have a gains-honour-reputation-core,
nor an accomplishment-in-ethics-core,
nor a accomplishment-in-serenity-core,
nor a knowledge-vision-core.
But there is beggars, unshakable heart-release
here, beggars the best course is for attainment of this.
This is it's hardwood.
This is it's encompassing end.
May all beings be well and happy
May I act with friendliness in thought, word, and deed
towards all living beings
in whatsoever of the ten directions they may abide
whether far or near
May I sympathize with their pains and sorrows
Empathize with their situations
and be at all times objectively detached.
