Astonishing gift and resource

How wonderful to start this day with the words of the Buddha at ones fingertips. This app is simply amazing. It probably shouldn’t make a difference to have the texts accessible via an app— but considering these devices are in our hands a huge amount of the day—it does. So grateful this was developed. What a gift to all.
