Hi Bodom

My understanding is that Pariyatti had already published a soft-back edition of Vism some years ago. I remember seeing it after I bought one of the last copies of the BPS hard-cover 5th edition. I am surprised it has gone out of print in the interim.
kind regards

Ben

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

Is this just a reprinting, is it the new typesetting mentioned here?

As regards the question why the Path of Purification is not put online for free: It will be put online as a PDF for free on the BPS website and the Access to Insight website. Hopefully somewhere next year when the newly typeset and slightly revised printed edition will be put out. ...

Hi Ben, Hi Mike,

That the book is being reprinted is the only information that has been released so far. No details have been given. I hope to hear more soon and will post when new information becomes available.
