``It is hoped that the extraordinary ease and speed with which documents and materials forming the EBA [Electronic Buddhist Archives] collection can be located, copied, duplicated and transmitted from person to person, from Sangha to Sangha, from city to city, from continent to continent will foster daily regular exchange of information and ideas between students and practitioners of Buddhism all over this planet.
Maybe, one day, this instantaneous communicational immediacy will facilitate the birth of a vast, harmonious and intricate Earth-wide Sangha.''
