Udana

Postby Reductor » Tue Feb 02, 2010 5:53 am

As some may recall, I inquired as to where to purchase the Udana by Ireland. I found a distributor in Canada, but for various reasons did not purchase from them. So now I inquire to a complete translation online of good/fair quality. Specifically, is there a complete trans from Thanissaro available online that I can print?

“What should be done for his disciples out of compassion by a teacher who seeks their welfare and has compassion for them, that I have done for you, bhikkhus. There are these roots of trees, these empty huts. Meditate, bhikkhus, do not delay or else you will regret it later. This is our instruction to you.” - MN 19

I know I can buy it. But a) I don't want to pay the shipping and b) even if I did, I ran out of money ;)

The one on access has 62 suttas, which is shy of the full 80. I'm just curious what's in those 18.

Thanks for the response Bodom.

Udana, English only pdf (115 pages), audio and html:

There's also a long (317 pages) Pali + English translation with footnotes:

Thank you for that link. It appears to be a good translation indeed, but I'll have to read the whole thing to know.
