Path of Purification Back to Press

This summer Pariyatti will reprint The Path of Purification, Bhikkhu Ñānamoli’s translation of the Pali-language Visuddhimagga.

http://www.pariyatti.org/

: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

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

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.
