Re: Source for the Pāli Canon in English

Here's an interesting looking selection from the Pāli Canon, the Parivara. This is an old translation, but hopefully a favored one.

Has anyone read this particular volume?

Re: Source for the Pāli Canon in English

Again, I hope it's okay if I inquire about specific volumes of Pāli Canon literature before I buy them so I end up with good, current, complete versions. I will keep the inquiries within this same thread unless there is a good reason to start a new thread. What do you all think of Jataka Tales by El...

Re: Good morning everybody.

Thank you for the explanation Cöemgenu. I am interested in learning as much as possible about the history, philosophy and different schools of Buddhism, so I guess reading the Abhidharmakośa will give the subject some historical context, even if (as you say) it is not directly related to the particu...

Re: Source for the Pāli Canon in English

I found this used copy of the Digha Nikaya for $15 shipped. Screenshot_20210221-105301.png Now I need to do more reading what I have (most of it being available online anyhow, but I still prefer reading hard copies) and less buying for the time being. I hope everyone is enjoying their Sunday. -Michael

Re: Source for the Pāli Canon in English

Well, when I get on a kick, I just can't stop, haha. I just ordered this volume. Maybe I will put together the whole Pāli Canon in a year or so.

Re: Source for the Pāli Canon in English

This is my most recent order. I am just randomly purchasing the volumes based on what I can afford. Now I need to wait a month or so before adding any new ones. I figure, in a couple years, I will have the whole Pāli Canon. I can always replace volumes that are inferior or outdated translations. But...

Re: Good morning everybody.

Any thoughts on this book? It is one of the first two I bought a few weeks ago.

Re: Source for the Pāli Canon in English

I am glad this thread has generated a healthy debate. This is good information for me to learn from. Two of the books I have received so far are actually in Pāli, so this will be all the more incentive to get learning this language. I apologize if I have posted info about any books that are not appl...

Re: Source for the Pāli Canon in English

I just ordered this version of the Iti-Vuttaka for $20. Though it is clearly one of the early traslations (1884), I hope it is one of the better ones.

Re: Good morning everybody.

Yesterday afternoon, a friend and I paid another visit to the Wat Florida Dhammaram and we attended the 1pm service (I am bad with time management, so we were late, but at least we made it to the last half!). Afterwards, I spoke with the Abbot and will be looking to schedule an hour with him to lear...

Re: Source for the Pāli Canon in English

I come from a Christian background and, so, more or less, a Bible is a Bible is a Bible. I am glad to know that the same is not the case with the Buddhist scriptures. Ahh. That tells us what kind of Christian you were! Some Christians feel that the King James Version is the only one that god approv...

Re: Source for the Pāli Canon in English

This is the latest book I ordered. Hopefully it is one of the better versions of the Samyutta-nikaya of the Sutta-Pitaka Part l Sagatha Vagga.
