Stephen Karakashev's Personal Website

My logo which I made myself in Adobe Illustrator

Hi! My name is Stephen and this is my website.

I am a Theravāda Buddhist who is also getting great teachings from the Mahāyāna and Vajrayāna. Of interest is to note that I created and developed to a profound degree the following two things on Wikipedia: Outline of Buddhism and Template:Buddhism topics.

I am also a student of IT, in particular Front-end Web Development, with a view to find work as a Front-end Web Developer in 2022. I am studying at Treehouse. I also like studying from Udemy, the MDN Web Docs, CSS-Tricks, Web Platform, DEV.to, amongst other resources. I am also studying IT more broadly from Amazon Kindle books and Google Play Books on my tablet, Wikipedia and the Internet. I think every Web Developer needs to study as many subfields of Computing & IT as possible.

My goal is to become an erudite by learning as much as possible about as many things as possible, for 10 minutes per day. I started this endeavour in 2021 and plan to continue learning for as long as life lasts. My main specializations in terms of knowledge are listed below. Of interest is to know that you can find DK (Dorling Kindersley) books on Amazon Kindle (at amazon.com and amazon.co.uk), Google Play Books, as well as print books — these are such great, interesting, well-made and well-written educational books on all kinds of topics. You can read them all on your tablet and carry it along with you anywhere you go.

  1. Buddhism
  2. IT, in particular Front-end Web Development
  3. Languages: English (near-native), Pāḷi and Sanskrit Buddhist terminology, IT terminology, and I already know a fair amount of Greek, my native language being Bulgarian
  4. Mathematics
  5. Human anatomy (the best anatomy app is 3D4Medical Complete Anatomy 2022, which is available for desktop and mobile devices — it is totally profound)
  6. Philosophy
  7. Science
    • Formal sciences
      • Computer Science
      • Logic
      • Other formal sciences
    • Natural and physical sciences
    • Social sciences
    • Applied sciences
    • Health sciences
  8. History
  9. Famous people
  10. Technology & Engineering
  11. Nutrition & dietetics
  12. Economics and money matters
  13. People and the Self
  14. Human activities
  15. Culture & the Arts
    • Painting
  16. Literature (in old age)

Although my English is near-native, I am taking the time to improve it even further as I want to learn totally profound English, even though it is not my native language. I also enjoy listening to music and in the past I was into sports such as football (soccer) and tennis, but gave them up and do not play nor watch them anymore; however, I like jogging.

In the future, I will improve this website signficantly and devote it mostly to Buddhism and IT, but also to other things I am learning about.

In the meantime, you can contact me via email or find me on social media (see below).

A tip: bear in mind that countless famous people have been (badly) defamed and so many of the things written about them are wrong and never happened. Enemies of theirs defamed them for posterity. Doubt everything written about famous and great people.
