Greetings,

Have you checked out...

Abhidhamma Resources
viewtopic.php?f=18&t=826

Metta,
Retro. :)
"When we transcend one level of truth, the new level becomes what is true for us. The previous one is now false. What one experiences may not be what is experienced by the world in general, but that may well be truer. (Ven. Nanananda)

“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)

Never again...

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:
