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(As I was told, author's rights now are out of date and so this translation is now free to download)

:anjali:
The heart of the path is SO simple. No need for long explanations. Give up clinging to love and hate, just rest with things as they are. That is all I do in my own practice. Do not try to become anything. Do not make yourself into anything. Do not be a meditator. Do not become enlightened. When you sit, let it be. When you walk, let it be. Grasp at nothing. Resist nothing. Of course, there are dozens of meditation techniques to develop samadhi and many kinds of vipassana. But it all comes back to this - just let it all be. Step over here where it is cool, out of the battle. - Ajahn Chah

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
