Four Nikayas - complete English translation now online

Postby Stephen K » Wed Jun 05, 2013 3:03 pm

This site ( http://www.palicanon.org ) has recently (3 days ago) made a major update of its content and now offers:

1. From the Vinaya Pitaka - the Bhikkhu and Bhikkhuni Patimokkha
2. From the Sutta Pitaka - Complete translations of all four major nikayas (DN, MN, SN, AN) translated (it seems to me) by Bhikkhu Bodhi (except DN), as well as a few books from KN (Khuddakapatha, Dhammapada, Udana, Itivuttaka, and Sutta Nipata)
3. From the Abhidhamma Pitaka - Dhammasangani and Kathavatthu
My philosophy is simple: saying 'yes' to the positive and 'no' to the negative; because the positive is so much better than the negative.

Saadhu! Saadhu! Saadhu! May the light of the Dhamma now shine forth unimpeded throughout the entire English speaking world!
The non-doing of any evil,
The performance of what's skillful,
The cleansing of one's own mind:
This is the Buddhas' teaching.

Thanks! It seems my online Sutta resources are growing...

Fantastic!

But how does it work in terms of copyrights? Wisdom publications seemed to be pretty tight on the subject..
