Giving away lots of PDF Books for free

Postby Stephen K » Fri Mar 16, 2012 11:06 am

Yesterday, I uploaded on my website nearly all of the PDF Dhamma books I had collected on my computer over time. I was reminded by Ven. Pesala about copyright restrictions, and so I have removed documents that clearly stated were not to be freely distributed.

Books include: Visuddhimagga, Vimuttimagga, Abhidhammattha Sangaha, Mindfulness in Plain English, and many more.

The link is: http://www.stefan.gr/buddhism

If you want to add to that list, send me a PDF and I will upload it.

Well done, Stefan!
Congratulations on your meritorious efforts.

Sadhu! Excellent!

Great site, thank you.

You may want to add Ven. Dhammika's:

I believe it is okay to upload it or you could put it as a link, if interested.

Greetings Stefan,

Good stuff. Nice background picture too.

I just referenced your page on...

Google Saffron (Theravada Search Engine)

Metta,
Retro. :)

Whatever various forms of unease there are in the world, They originate founded in encumbering accumulation. (Pārāyanavagga)

Strangely, Kaspersky has flagged that link as being a malicious "phishing" url.

Is there one written by Buddha himself or dictated by him?
