Bhikkhu Bodhi wins award for Anguttara Nikaya translation

Postby retrofuturist » Fri Jun 07, 2013 2:02 am

Greetings,

Our chairman and founder, Ven. Bhikkhu Bodhi, received a special honor in late April when he was informed that his translation of the Anguttara Nikaya, The Numerical Discourses of the Buddha, was chosen to receive the 2013 Khyentse Foundation Prize for Outstanding Translation Work. More

(though those robes he's wearing are an "interesting" shade of saffron :? )

Metta,
Retro. :)

Retro that's a common shade of robe, most common in Burma, pretty common in Sri Lanka, especially among the Galduwa and the Amarapura nikayas.

Good for Venerable Bodhi. I'm yet to get my mits on a copy of the AN, but I hear he's done a great job. Venerable Bodhi has made a massive contribution to the Dhamma. A scholar monk for the ages :D

May he achieve an excellent rebirth as a result.

Haha I had quite forgotten about that! But it's as true today as it was way back then.

IIRC someone had made a comment that the Dhammawheel forums could easily double as a Bhikkhu Bodhi fan club.

P.S. Great win for your boys against Miami today David :)

We should also keep in mind that Ven Nyanaponika's ABHIDHAMMA STUDIES and his HEART OF BUDDHIST MEDITATION were not hard-line traditional Theravada. They were fairly radical.

Congratulations to Bhikkhu Bodhi.
I am not surprised that Bhante has won the award, I just wish there was greater acknowledgement of his fantastic work.
kind regards,

Ben

This is great to hear! I'm so grateful to all the people that contribute to the teachings. Without you, people like myself would not have access to these teachings. Dhamma is truly the greatest gift one could share with another. Congratulations Bhikkhu Bodhi!

I am currently reading Bhikkhu Bodhi's Anguttara Nikaya. Great work by a great individual.
