Access to Insight: Readings in Theravada Buddhism
This site includes both resources for the beginning study of Buddhism as well as extensive portions of the Pali canon. The CD-ROM A Handful of Leaves is out of print, but they offer a link where you can download the entire site instead.
An Introduction to Buddhism
George Boeree’s simple and thoughtful presentation of Buddhist fundamentals. The site also includes some delightful extras, such as an explanation of Buddhist cosmology.
Buddhadharma:  The Practioner’s Quarterly
An excellent magazine, although it tends to present much more about Tibetan Buddhism than other branches.  Owned by Shambala Sun, the publishers, this is understandable. Smiley with sunglasses
BuddhaNet — Australia’s Buddhist Information Network
This has links to an extensive library of text files on many different Buddhist traditions.
The Journal of Buddhist Ethics
A scholarly journal devoted to the study of Buddhist ethics.

A worldwide Zen community led by Roshi Dennis Genpo Merzel. Based in, of all places, Salt Lake City, Utah.

The Home Page of the Salt Lake Buddhist Temple, the largest and oldest Buddhist group in Utah.  The only reason this link is here is that Ivan is a member. Say CHEESE!

Home page of noted Buddhist scholar and teacher Stephen Batchelor, author of Buddhism Without Belief
Tricycle Magazine
An Independent Buddhist Quarterly.
Vipassana Meditation
A Theravada Buddhist tradition rather different and simpler than the Mahayana Tibetan and Zen traditions.
The Buddhist Channel
Billed as “The Channel that Buddhists can Call Their Own,” it used to be “The Buddhist News Network,” which sent out newsletters picking up Buddhist-related news stories, delivering them to your emailbox. Now you have to go to it, and is almost always worth it.
What Do You Think, My Friend?
Tan Chade Meng’s extraordinary Web site detailing his personal and practical approach to Buddhism in the real world.

Ryunyo King’s Pure Land temple in Battle Ground, Washington.
