Patisambidamagga

Postby Zom » Sun May 16, 2010 7:33 pm

A translation of the Patisambhidamagga, a practical guide to the Buddhist way of life and philosophy. The Path of Discrimanation, or comprehension, is attributed to Sariputta and it tries to show exactly how understanding of reality takes place in a practical sense, not simply in theory.

(As I was told, author's rights now are out of date and so this translation is now free to download)

“What should be done for his disciples out of compassion by a teacher who seeks their welfare and has compassion for them, that I have done for you, bhikkhus. There are these roots of trees, these empty huts. Meditate, bhikkhus, do not delay or else you will regret it later. This is our instruction to you.” - MN 19

Are you sure? It looks to be copyrighted by PTS in 1982. Unless the copy right laws are different in Britan I would think that it was still in force.

I think you're right thereductor, the copyright is still in effect.
I will remove the link until the issue is clarified by PTS.
kind regards
