Articles on the Visuddhimagga

Postby sherubtse » Sun May 03, 2009 12:26 am

I am reading through the _Visuddhimagga_, and am finding it to be more interesting than I had assumed.

Are there any good articles on this work? (I suppose it is too much to ask if there is a translation its Atthakatha ....)

With metta,

Not all of it. Parts of it have been translated by Nina van Gorkom and posted to http://www.groups.yahoo.com/group/dhammastudygroup

I have tried to find it on the web but ended up just buying it

I believe a free distribution hard copy can be obtained from some free distribution places though

To be a little more specific, if you go to the "Files" section of the group (you have to join first...) there is a link:
Useful_Posts_March_2009.htm
Useful posts (with links) updated March 2009

Where you can find entries such as:
Visuddhimagga (Path of Purification) - Understanding with Sub-comy extracts
Visuddhimagga, ch X1V, Larry's index of text posts and Nina's summaries and translations of the commentary

These will take you to the specific topics.
