Great now I just need an Iphone.

:anjali:
The heart of the path is SO simple. No need for long explanations. Give up clinging to love and hate, just rest with things as they are. That is all I do in my own practice. Do not try to become anything. Do not make yourself into anything. Do not be a meditator. Do not become enlightened. When you sit, let it be. When you walk, let it be. Grasp at nothing. Resist nothing. Of course, there are dozens of meditation techniques to develop samadhi and many kinds of vipassana. But it all comes back to this - just let it all be. Step over here where it is cool, out of the battle. - Ajahn Chah

That would be great too.

All Buddhists texts should be available in digital format. It would be much easier to carry the Tipitaka on an iPhone or Blackberry than in physical book form.

Much more difficult to read though... and those books were made for reading.

Metta,
Retro. :)

Mmm...maybe...although in the panorama view, with the 4" screen...and the bigger size font, it's pretty nice having ATI in your pocket...yam (bag) in my case...dyno in fact... :smile:

Neat app!

I read quite a bit on my iPhone. The Kindle app in landscape, at largest font setting, is perfect for my 43-year-old eyes. The biggest advantage, of course, is that it is always with me, should I have an opportunity to enjoy some literature. :)

I actually have been enjoying reading on my blackberry. I can even use an autoscroll for pacing which makes me focus more and less likely to space out, backtrace, etc.
