Hi Bhante,

wisdom books has a copy (see link above).
This offering maybe right, or wrong, but it is one, the other, both, or neither!

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

Taṃ nadīhi vijānātha:
sobbhesu padaresu ca,
saṇantā yanti kusobbhā,
tuṇhīyanti mahodadhī.

Does anyone have a spare copy to send to the venerable? Maybe that would be helpful?
Rain soddens what is kept wrapped up,
But never soddens what is open;
Uncover, then, what is concealed,
Lest it be soddened by the rain.

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)

The Visuddhimagga reminds me a lot of the Abhidhamma. Maybe because of all the analysis or maybe because it is a great cure to insomnia.

The Bhumibalobhikkhu Institute (situated at Wat Saket, Bangkok) has published a paperback edition (in 3 volumes) in Pali, Thai script. They also have published the Commentary and the Subcommentary (3 volumes each). The commentaries have the same paragraph numberings as the main text, and commented words are underlined, so that it is very convenient to navigate in the volumes and use these together.
