    Thank you. I always wondered about that. Buddhists in my tradition take care to not step on or over sacred texts, nor do we mark them in any way.

    I knew that but have always wondered why it matters since God is English not Hebrew. Shalom Auslander tells a very funny story of how his teacher at Hebrew School decided Shalom's name was too holy to be written or pronounced so he insisted Shalom be called Shalo.
