Edit: It's just come back. A sure sign that I am just clicking icons wildly, rather than thinking about what I am doing... :toilet:
There was an issue but I raised it with them. Must have fixed it.

So you are going to start studying & analyzing sutta rather than rely on secular scholars. Cool. Maybe we can chat on Zoom about your personal investigations. :bow:

I can't make head or tail of the new format.

:cry:

Could someone kindly tell me how I would go about finding, say, the Pali text of MN 2?

By clicking here.

Or...

> Main Page
> Collection Of Middle Discourses
> Shortcut To All Suttas
> Scroll down

Metta,

Well, from the home page you could click on the cards suttaPitaka>Majjhima>MajjhimaNikaya (that's the tricky bit, there are Chinese agamas)>First Fifty>chapter on root of all things

Then click on MN2. You will see a suta-plex card:
21-03-17 11_18_59-Mūlapariyāyavagga—Suttas and Parallels — Mozilla Firefox.png
There you see the translation languages as well as root text. Easy peazy.

But if you know that you want mn2, you can get to that card by typing suttacentral.net/mn2

Hope that helps.

Thanks Paul and BKh.

I can't understand why everyone's enthusing about this latest version. I could find what I was looking for much more quickly and easily with the older version and quickest and most easily of all with the very first version.

Actually the first version (still surviving as legacy.suttacentral.net, but unfortunately no longer updated) is still my first port of call, simply because I have a slow connection and it loads much faster than its newfangled successors.

It is the proliferation of technology, Bhante :popcorn:
And the Blessed One addressed the bhikkhus, saying: "Behold now, bhikkhus, I exhort you: All compounded things are subject to vanish. Strive with earnestness!"

This was the last word of the Tathagata.
