Pali Website Recommendation

Postby Dhammanando » Tue Feb 24, 2009 12:42 am


A recent announcement posted by Jim Anderson to the Yahoo Pali grammar list:

Dear Members,

I'd like to recommend the following website for those who do not already know about it:

Ancient Buddhist Texts

Anandajoti Bhikkhu seeems to be the main one behind it or at least the main contributor. You'll find, for example, a comparative edition of the Dhammapada which shows side by side 4 different versions (, Patna, Gandhaarii, Udaanavarga). There is also a revised edition (with a translation) in progress of a grammar based on the Padama~njarii by Ven. Devamitta of Molligoda (first published in 1922). The new work is entitled Navapadama~njarii. The website has a lot of material that will be of interest to students and scholars of Pali texts and translations.

Best wishes,
    Yathā bubbuḷakaṃ passe, yathā passe marīcikaṃ,
    Evaṃ lokaṃ avekkhantaṃ, maccurājā na passati.

    One should see it as a bubble;
    One should see it as a mirage.
    Who regards the world thus
    The King of Death sees him not.
    (Dhammapada 170)

    ผู้ที่มองเห็นโลก ว่าไม่จีรังและหาสาระอะไรมิได้
    คนเช่นนี้พญามารย่อมตามหาไม่พบ ฯ
    (ธรรมบท ๑๗๐)
