During email exchanges with Neil Cohen at the end of 2012 and beginning of 2013, he kindly wrote: “Please download and save any of those teachings you want and place them onto any websites you wish. Those are pristine teachings, very easy to read.”

I responded by stating that I believed that his beautifully written teachings would definitely have a place on my website dealing with “Buddhist spirituality”. And, that it would be a pleasure to acknowledge his Outreach ministry in the process of using them.
