Thanks for this podcast. Hopefully you will continue.

Could you do a podcast that focuses on the Tibetan alphabet and how to pronounce it?

Thanks.

Why did you stop posting? Your blog is fantastic. I sponsor several young monks at the Jangchubling monastery, at the Drikung Kagyu Institute in Dehra Dun India. I've sent video mail to them using sounds clips to learn phrases. There aren't many free sites available; so your blog is great...PLEASE, COME BACK!
