Hi Bhante,
http://www.wisdom-books.com/ProductDeta ... 90&MATCH=2

wisdom books has a copy (see link above).


He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
...
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.

“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725

Does anyone have a spare copy to send to the venerable? Maybe that would be helpful?

You're very kind Manapa, thank you...but I'm more or less a wanderer and the bulk and weight of the hardcover is a bit much to carry...I rip half the bristles out of my toothbrush (amongst other things) to lessen the 'load'...

The cost is covered and it was just a matter of finding a source to obtain it...I didn't mean to appear 'fishing' in my query...

Be well... :smile:

I didn't think you were fishing and almost sent you a PM offering mine, I had to give it a dust the other day as I noticed it had gained a decent amount of dust from the never reading it since I got it (I think I have opend it 3 times and once was because I accidently droped it)
