    The simple English Wikipedia is a completely different Wikipedia. To get there from any article, click on the down arrow by "languages" on the left hand side, and scroll down till you see "Simple English". If it's not there, then that article doesn't have a simple counterpart.

    The other way, of course, is to go straight to and search from there.

    As someone who writes for the Simple English Wikipedia, I'd encourage you, if the article doesn't exist, add it to the list at , and me or someone else will come along and write it when we have time.

    Spread the word- Simple English needs more viewers.

    Avatars refer to a concept that is not any different at all from your "real" name as also only concept. This is a spiritual question because, in fact, there is nothing such as a You that exists. The You/Me/I which folks think they are is a linguistic convention for something that exists only in a dualistic consciousness. Importantly and ultimately, there is not a You and Your Life. There is not God except as your dualistic consciousness thinks one up. Knowing this or even just acting as if this were true changes behavior in a positive way. Thinking there is a God usually (not always) results in the worst kind of behavior because of the divisive delusion and ultimate arrogance it is based on. The practice of remembering and reminding one's "self" this is usually called religion in the broadest sense. Kshetra means a field of action and a holy place - sometimes site of a war - which affects consciousness in the way that physics describes reality. The World Trade Center Site in New York is one such Kshetra.
