Hi,

My name is Kåre Albert Lie, and I live in Norway. I first got interested in buddhism around 1970. I studied Pali on my own (using mainly Warder), and later Pali and Sanskrit at the University in Oslo. I got my first real introduction to meditation from the Burmese teacher U Janaka.

I have translated several Pali and Sanskrit texts into Norwegian, and I have also written some books on different aspects of buddhism ... also in Norwegian. At present I am writing an anthology of Pali texts (translated into Norwegian), in cooperation with The Buddhist Association of Norway, where we are trying to present a condensed, but also comprehensive picture of the life and teachings of the Buddha - a kind of Mini-Tipitaka in one volume.
Mettāya,
Kåre

Thank you for the friendly welcome - both from yourself and from the others who have replied here.

Parallell with the anthology I am also translating Vol. 3 of the Digha Nikaya into Norwegian. Vol. 1 was published in 1992, Vol. 2 in 2005, and I hope to finish Vol. 3 this spring and maybe have it published in the autumn or the winter - unless the financial crisis has scared the publisher from publishing this kind of literature, which admittedly has a rather limited number of potential buyers.
Mettāya,

Greetings and welcome, Kåre.

Many thanks for your efforts, translating the Dhamma and presenting it in a different language is a tremendous service!
