Finding The Visuddhimagga XVII.28 translated into sanskrit.

Postby Emmet » Tue Jul 14, 2009 4:22 am

I am looking for a translation of a passage in The Visuddhimagga it is in the section XIII.28. So far I can have only found it in roman lettering. The part of the passage I want reads "The mental and material are really here. But there is no humanity to be found. For it is void and merely fashioned like a doll. Just suffering piled up from grass and sticks."

It would be extremely valuable to me personally to have the translation, which I am finding very hard to find. And I would also be extremely grateful to anyone who could point me in the right direction in terms of finding it.

Thanks :)

Hi Emmet,

I don't understand the question.

The Visuddhimagga was composed in Pali (not Sanskrit). Do you mean that you can find the Pali for that passage, but using Roman letters, and you want it written in some Indian script instead? I'm not sure if it is known what script it was originally written down in...

You must mean Devanagari script for a tatoo or such?

“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725

Yes sorry, I probably mean in Devangari script. Just any script it was in before being translated into Roman lettering or outright English.

Ok then. I stand corrected. I will be extra careful to use the term "transliteration" in the future.

Making it a bit larger:



Just a note: the quotation marks are not really part of the Devanagari script.

Hi,

No problem! :thumbsup: Actually it wasn't hard to find since http://www.tipitaka.org provides canonical and paracanonical texts in many scripts.
