Books by Venerable Ledi Sayādaw

Postby Bhikkhu Pesala » Thu Dec 02, 2010 5:15 pm

I have updated a few more of the books by Venerable Ledi Sayādaw. No great changes, just reformatting and correcting some errors.

— A reply by the Sayādaw to thirteen questions posed by lay Buddhists regarding how to deal with shameless and immoral monks.

— Part One of the Goṇasūra Dīpanī on meat-eating and intoxicants.

— Part Two of the Goṇsūra Dīpanī on intoxicants, horse-racing, and gambling.

Thank you venerable, for your work in spreading the dhamma. :anjali:

A question: did you write the editor's forward to the Manual of Dhamma?
He turns his mind away from those phenomena, and having done so, inclines his mind to the property of deathlessness: 'This is peace, this is exquisite — the resolution of all fabrications; the relinquishment of all acquisitions; the ending of craving; dispassion; cessation; Unbinding.'
(Jhana Sutta - Thanissaro Bhikkhu translation)

Yes. You will see my name as the editor on the book's title page.

I have added my name as the editor to the index page on the web site.

Just updated: too.

completes the set of those works by the Venerable Ledi Sayādaw that I had published before.

I have also updated by the late Venerable Mahāgandhayon Sayādaw, U Janakābhivamsa. That is the only one of his I have edited.

Venerable,

Thank you for the links. I started reading "A Talk on Intoxicants and Gambling" and today it was very helpful at a certain moment of the day.

I just added to my site.

This is only a short article of 16 pages, written while the Sayādaw was travelling on a ferry to Rangoon from Akyab.

Ah, thank you Bhante.
I appreciate your excellent work in translation, especially in translating and making available the works of the Venerable Ledi Sayadaw. Thank you for your valuable work assisting in preserving and propagating the Sasana.
Anumodana on your meritorious efforts!
with metta,

Ben

I wish I could do more, but its very time-consuming to edit the longer books. I don't think many will be interested in the more academic works like the Pāramī Dīpanī or the Āhāra Dīpanī even if I could find time to edit them.

My site is back up again now — it seems like my free hosting service has to do some server maintenance about once a month, and it usually seems to be on a Sunday.

completes the set of Ledi Sayādaw's works currently available.

It never ceases to amaze me that every time I edit a book I find some more errors — mostly nothing serious, but still worth fixing.

I might add some new titles later — I have plenty more of the Sayādaw's works, but all require more time than I have to spare at the moment.

Thank you again, Bhante.
I am quite partial to the Sayadaw's writings. I had the opportunity to meditate in his meditation cave by the Chindwin River a few years ago.
Can you please tell me, are there any of his works that have not been translated into English yet?
kind regards,

Ben

Thank you, Bhante, that is excellent.
Some of those works I am not familiar with.
The works I am familiar with are published under the title Manuals of Buddhism/Dhamma. I also have Manual of the Excellent Man and Manual of Nibbana. I'll dig out my electronic copy of Manual of Nibbana and cross reference it against your list as its been awhile since I have read it.
kind regards,

Ben

is a Directory of the Buddhist Manuals written by the Venerable Ledi Sayādaw.

The PDF is attached here too. Let me know if you spot any errors or typos. It was a bit of a rush job.
