Transliterated Tipitaka

Postby theravada_guy » Mon Jan 18, 2010 5:58 am

Greetings all,

I found this link to the Tipitaka online that has transliterations in Roman, Devangari, Gujarathi, Tibetan and plenty of other languages. It's not much help for me, since I can't really understand what I'm reading, even the Roman. But, I thought it may be of help to some of you guys. So, here's the link:

Maybe this has already been posted. If so, I do apologize for a double post.
With metta,

Justin

Hi TG
Yes, it has been posted before, but it is good to remind those who may have forgotten or for new members who might be looking for such a resource.
kind regards

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.

Sutta Nipata 3.725

Preparation to publish the Tipitaka with philosophers’ teachings for hotels all over the world.

18th – 19th December 2009, The Most Ven. Prof. Dr. Phra Dharmakosajarn - Royal Scholar, Rector of Mahachulalongkornrajavidyalaya, Ecclesiastical Regional Governor 2, Rector of International Association of Buddhist Universities (IABU), has attended the Committee for Publishing the First Universal Tripitaka at Mahachulalongkornrajavidyalaya University, Tambol Lam Sai, Wang Noi, Ayutthaya.

The organising committee has agreed to abridge the Tipitaka scriptures and gather writing related to Buddhism into one easy-to-readandeasy-to-understand book. According to the agreement of International Council of United Nations Day of Vesak, the book of Tipitaka with philosophers’ teachings will be distributed to hotels all over the globe for free.

“The Committee for Publishing the First Universal Tripitaka is a project which helps to create a better understanding of the principles of Buddhism for the public. It reflects the cultural treasure of Theravada, Mahayana, and Vajrayana Buddhism and responds to a social need in order to equalise the importance of teaching of these three sects and gives the opportunity for hotel guests to have easy access to Dhamma,” said The Most Ven. Prof. Dr. Phra Dharmakosajarn.

A reminder of this excellent resource is always useful. Let us give our deepest thanks to those people who help to make the Tipitaka available to us all, both on the site you mentioned, and as a CD!

In Norway we have already worked with such a project for a few years. This work has produced an anthology in Norwegian containing central texts from the Tipitaka. This anthology is being printed these days. It will be available in a couple of weeks.
