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.

He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
...
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.

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.
