Learn Buddha Vacana

Postby Sekha » Sat Feb 11, 2012 3:20 pm

The website I have been working on these past few months just moved at http://www.buddha-vacana.org/

A nice place to start could be the Dhammacakkappavattana Sutta: http://www.buddha-vacana.org/sutta/samy ... 6-011.html

Good Work!

Greetings,

I've just added it to the list of sites referenced by Google Saffron for you.

Friends,

I happen to have noticed that there is a French site with the very same content and format, called "La Parole du Bouddha."
The address ishttp://www.tipitaka.fr. There seems to be no link on one indicating the existence of the other. Similar sites in other languages would be good, because the whole idea is excellent.

Hi Richard,

The link is in Dukkhanirodha's memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=1261 signature, and I presume he/she speaks both English and French, given the French Guiana location.

I was fortunate enough to meet ven. Sayadaw U Revata at Nandaka Vihara, Bukit Mertajam, Malaysia this morning.

He is the meditation teacher for foreigners at the Pa Auk monastery in Myanmar. A truly special person. I wouldn't be surprised at all to learn he his an ariya.

For some reason, I happened to mention incidentally my work buddha-vacana.org during the conversation, and he showed great interest, he even asked me to write down the address of the website : )
