some suttas

Postby Cittasanto » Sat Jun 18, 2011 6:26 am

here is a link to a PDF I recently finished, with some pali suttas I have had the nerve to render into english!

no professional, or expert pali scholar so any errors you notice, or even if you know of a better manner inwhich to render a word or phrase feel free to let me know.

“Mendicants, these two [types of persons] defame the Tathāgata.
(The mendicants asked) What are the two [types of persons]?
(The Lord Buddha responded) The malicious, or the inwardly angry, and the one with (blind) faith or the one who holds things incorrectly.
Mendicants, these two [types of persons] defame the Tathāgata.”
Blog, Suttas, Aj Chah, Facebook.
"Others will misconstrue reality based on personal perspectives, firmly holding onto and not easily discarding them; We shall not misconstrue reality due to our personal perspectives, nor firmly holding them, but easily discarded."

Thanks for sharing.

Are you by any chance using LaTeX?
Suffering is asking from life what it can never give you.

If you see any unskillful speech (or other action) from me let me know, so I can learn from it.
