Thank you very much for the suggestion and offer. I'm not certain if this forum, or the meditation forum, is the best place for such a discussion. However, since this forum is called "Study Group", not "Sutta Study Group" we might as well get started here and we could always move it if it seemed that somewhere else was more appropriate. It would be great if you could try to think out some structured way of approaching it, and give some guidance. An obvious approach would be to discuss it chapter by chapter.
I would advise not being in too much of a rush. Looking at each chapter over a couple of weeks would be the sort of speed I'd recommend. That would give interested readers time to think, and locate references.
Something useful you (and others) could do would be to locate on-line versions of the footnotes as we go through, and give links and extracts.
Many suttas, the Satipatthana Commentary http://www.accesstoinsight.org/lib/auth ... wayof.html
and the Visuddhimagga, are on http://www.accesstoinsight.org/
can be really helpful because it links not only A2I, but also MettaNet http://www.metta.lk/tipitaka/index.html
and some on-line BPS publications: http://www.bps.lk/onlinelibrary_wheels.asp#trans
