Parāyanasutta

Postby echalon » Thu Jan 14, 2010 11:21 pm

In the Winter 2009 issue of Buddhadharma, in the article "Gautama vs. the Buddha", Glenn Wallis gives a translation of a portion of the Parāyanasutta. There's nothing new in here by any stretch of the imagination, but it has a very compact summary of the path and a wonderful call to action at the end of it. I found it very inspiring, and I would highly recommend reading it. As far as I can tell, the only English translation available online is in a copy of the article on Glenn Wallis' website. You can find it at . For those interested in the Pali text, you can find it at or at (all the way at the bottom, #409). Wallis' translation includes only the first portion of the sutta. Enjoy!

I enjoyed his Dhammapada translation and commentary as well.

To practice is to know your defilements,
To attain the goal is to know and let go.
