How do I say "Woohoo!" in Norwegian?
"Only those who take to meditation with good intentions can be assured of success. With the development of the purity and the power of the mind backed by the insight into the ultimate truth of nature, one might be able to do a lot of things in the right direction for the benefit of mankind."

Just say it in English. Some Norwegians have little dust on their eyes. They will understand. :mrgreen:

Dear Kare,

Please pass on a very hearty "Woohoo" to the Norwegian Buddhist community and the hard-working translator for making the Dhamma a little more accessible to your countrymen and women.
kind regards

Ben

I believe the translator is none else than Kare himself...

Takk skal du ha, Kåre - det var veldig snilt av deg. Jeg får begynne å spare litt penger, så får vi se etter hvert.

mvh

Guilty as charged.

The Buddhist Society of Norway now sells the hard copy of this book. And printing, paper etc. costs money, so therefore the book also costs money. But the contents is also freely available online: http://dhamma.priv.no/digha.htm

In Kåre’s translation I believe “woohoo!” would be “Det er vidunderlig og fantastisk”. As in:

“Acchariyaṃ vata bho, abbhutaṃ vata bho, evarūpopi nāma uḷāro satthā bhavissati, evarūpaṃ uḷāraṃ dhammakkhānaṃ, evarūpā uḷārā visesādhigamā paññāyissantī” ti.
(Janavasabha Sutta, DN. 18)


“Det er vidunderlig og fantastisk at det finnes en så ypperlig læremester og en så ypperlig lære, og det er blitt bekjentgjort en så ypperlig vei til det herligste!”
(ibid. Kåre Lie trans.)


“It is wonderful, it is marvellous, that such a glorious Teacher should arise, that there should be such a glorious proclamation of Dhamma, and that such glorious paths to the sublime should be made known!”
(Maurice Walshe trans.)
    ...and this thought arose in the mind of the Blessed One:
    “Who lives without reverence lives miserably.”
    Uruvela Sutta, A.ii.20
