Thanks you, Bhante, for information.

I'm interested to get one of his books: "The fundamental teachings of early Buddhism: A comparative study based on the Sutranga portion of the Pali Samyutta-Nikaya and the Chinese Samyuktagama", based on his PhD Thesis. I could not believe the price tag of US$1,400.00 when I searched at amazon.com! See it at:

Perhaps it is classified as a rare book for collector's items!

Additional search at the original publisher in Germany ( ) reveals the list price is only 74 euros.

Don't know if I should try to order a copy!

You may also find interesting the articles by the German Theravada monk ven Analayo. There are a few available online, including one or two in the Journal of Buddhist Ethics.

Thanks Dmytro.
I've just checked out Ven Analayo's publication list and read one of his journal articles.
They're a real treasure! Thanks so much!

Hello Suanck,

The Australasian Digital Theses Program lists Australasian theses
If you do a search on "Choong" you will find the thesis you are interested in listed amongst the results (Number 28). It is not available online from the University of Qld. which awarded it but they do have a service where you can buy a hardcopy

The University of New England, UNE (the Australian one), where Dr. Choong is a staff member according to the link you posted has a copy of his thesis in book form and 3 other books by him in their library. Do a search on "Choong" and "Author" here:
You might also consider emailing him [email protected]

You can join the UNE library as a special borrower for an annual fee and then use their resources, including borrowing books at a distance. If you are a student you may be able to borrow through inter library loan without having to become a special borrower. I'm assuming you're not in Australia...

Ven Pannasikara:

Thanks for insightful info on the Buddhist academia world. It seems not much different than the scientific academia I used to know! :-)

Don't know if some Buddhist organisations in Taiwan or Japan, with strong financial supports, could organize and/or sponsor such joint research? Perhaps it's just my wishful thinking ...

Dear Being5,

Thanks for your informative message. I'm exploring ways to obtain a copy of that book.

Suan

Insightful doesn't quite do this justice.
"For a disciple who has conviction in the Teacher's message & lives to penetrate it, what accords with the Dhamma is this:
'The Blessed One is the Teacher, I am a disciple. He is the one who knows, not I." -

And likewise too, why it is difficult to find good backing for investigations into the history of the Mahayana and Tantric traditions in places like Sri Lanka, and most of SE Asia, where, for several centuries, they were quite popular and strong. You know, simple little things, like copper plates of the large Prajnaparamita sutra, and other such things.
