Thank you, Starter!

What form does it take exactly? Is it mostly self-study or are there fixed times when everyone is online?

Hi my pleasure to be of help. I personally don't plan to attend the course since I can read the agama in Chinese, so I don't have more info about it. Please visit the website of Sati Center for Buddhist Studies for more information: http://www.sati.org/

Happy new year to all!

A suggestion for those who intend to sign up.

Pls invest in a copy of Ven Analayo's "A Comparative Study of the Majjhima Nikaya". It studies the Pali MN against nearly all of its suttas' attested parallels in Chinese, Tibetan, Sanskrit and several Prakrits. A great deal of the parallels are in the Chinese Madhyama-agama, so his book would be a great way to introduce yourself to the Chinese MA, pending his translation of the MA (due to be released this year).

A very frightening and hair-raising work, indeed, softened at times with interesting diversions such as Xerxes and Leonidas popping into a Brahmana-vagga analysis...

I bought mine online directly from the publisher Dharma Drum Buddhist College, via this address -

market@ddc.com.tw

They sent me a link to the page -

http://www.ddc.com.tw/PrtShow.asp?Serie ... ommId=4152

Be prepared for endless loops navigating their Chinese-only site, and being addressed as "Bodhisattva". You might try pleading with them for instructions in English...

After registration and ordering, their payment page needs to have the "Encoding" under the "View" tab to be altered to show up the credit card options in a legible form.

It's the Venerable's good kamma that he had so many scholars offering him unpublished transcripts of so many Sanskrit fragments, things that only get tantalisingly named as this collection or that collection in auctions or museum catalogues. It appears that the only texts that he did not translate himself were Tochanese, Uigher and Khotanese...

They don't use UTF-8 but some localized codepage I presume? Image

EDIT

I now realize that the smiley isn't quite wholesome. My apologies.

I see the 2012 course has started and am wondering when the talks will be available or where they are available to listen to?
This offering maybe right, or wrong, but it is one, the other, both, or neither!

The copy I asked the nearest university to order for their library arrived yesterday; two volumes, nicely sized, nice paper, floppy and weighty.

:reading:
    "And how is it, bhikkhus, that by protecting oneself one protects others? By the pursuit, development, and cultivation of the four establishments of mindfulness. It is in such a way that by protecting oneself one protects others.

    "And how is it, bhikkhus, that by protecting others one protects oneself? By patience, harmlessness, goodwill, and sympathy. It is in such a way that by protecting others one protects oneself.

I wasn't able to find a discussion of the work here on the site; tilt, did you ever get a copy? Anyone else?
