New publication of Ajahn Buddhadasa's work

Postby clw_uk » Tue Jun 29, 2010 10:58 pm

A new book that contains Ajahn Buddhadasa's work is soon to be published


It All Depends ...

Compiled from retreat talks exploring the practical understanding of dependent co-arising (paticcasamuppada), this new translation is in its final stages. Ajahn Buddhadasa's interpretation of paticcasamuppada cuts through a millennium of muddle to present this core of Buddha-Dhamma in a way that we can understand and practice today (rather than waiting for things to sort out in a future life).

This will be the most developed and extensive presentation of this teaching available in English. Sixteen chapters will be interspersed with important passages from the Pali suttas. Also to be published by Wisdom.

Please stay tuned for announcement of its publication in late 2010 or early 2011.


Sounds interesting, just thought I would share

Excellent! Its about time.

To practice is to know your defilements,
To attain the goal is to know and let go.

Greetings,

I'm hoping it's quite structured.

Obviously Ajahn Buddhadasa isn't here to ensure it is, but it would be really nice to have a well-structured and cohesive presentation on Dependent Origination. Somewhat like his "Practical Dependent Origination" text, but more detailed and more thorough.

If it just turns out to be a random scattering of Dhamma talks connected only by the fact they relate to dependent origination, I'll not be quite so enthused.
