Postby nyanasuci » Sun Apr 03, 2011 8:14 pm

Again regarding Kindle: Is there any file with Suttas in Pali which can be readable on Kindle?

The experts do not say that one is a sage in this world because of view, or learning, or knowledge, Nanda.
I call them sages who wander without association, without affliction, without desire.

The free utility Calibre can be used to convert PDF files to E-book formats. I'm not too sure about the details.

Here's the VRI tipitaka in epub format:

I've seen free programs that can convert epub format to something the kindle can read. I'm pretty sure there are people who have converted that file into a kindle version, I don't have a kindle myself but can ask around if needed.

Thanks to all. Using nibbanam.com/epubs and Calibre might work. I will try out...
