One interesting insight from my observations of the site statistics is that I often see external materials clicked from My Zen Path articles, and time spent is usually much larger than what average online articles attract. I believe this indicates that our readers much more curious and serious about knowing the topic in depth. That keeps me going with all my research,reading and spending inordinate amount of time for creating a single article. Of course, few encouraging mails and comments from you make it even better. 

I hope you'd enjoy this issue and looking forward to your comments and feedback. Wishing you an excellent weekend & month ahead! :-)
