Greetings,

Have you checked out...

Metta,
Retro. :)
“I hope, Anuruddha, that you are all living in concord, with mutual appreciation, without disputing, blending like milk and water, viewing each other with kindly eyes.” (MN 31)

What is the final conviction that comes when radical attention is razor-edge sharp? That the object of the mind is mind-made (manomaya). (Ven. Ñāṇananda)

"If you have always believed that everyone should play by the same rules and be judged by the same standards, that would have gotten you labeled a radical 50 years ago, a liberal 25 years ago and a racist today." (Thomas Sowell)

I added Pali Text Society to that list of resources. They have almost the entire Pitaka translated to English in print book format. I have all of those volumes. The translation appears to be good; I am not a Pali expert, but it is readable. It is somewhat difficult reading, but certainly understandable.

Abhidhamma-piṭaka:
Dhammasaṅgaṇī
Vibhaṅga
Dhātukathā
Puggalapaññatti
Kathāvatthu
Yamaka (no PTS translation yet)
Tikapaṭṭhāna
Dukapaṭṭhāna (no PTS translation yet)

Although two volumes have not been translated yet, I have heard that they are mostly summaries of the information in the other volumes.

Good stuff, if you have the funds and time. :thumbsup:
