Digitalizing English Translation of Pali Canon

E-mail Print PDF

I’m engaging in a project to digitalize the English translation of the Pali Canon. It is a large project as there are a lot of texts to translate. I am planning to use Wisdom Publication’s books.

Although there are already a few English translations around, but not all of them are of good quality so to speak. Besides, notes and commentary are quite important.

If you own some Wisdom Publication Pali Canon books and wish to participate, please let me know. At this moment I’m typing all the texts by myself, although I don’t rule out hiring some typewriters later.

Also, I will try to type in all the suttas first without notes, and add notes later since that will give audiences faster access to the suttas.

 

Thank you.

Quotes

" Knowing that this body is (fragile) like an earthen jar, making one's mind secure like a fortified town, one should fight Mara with the weapon of knowledge. (After defeating Mara ) one should still continue to guard one's mind, and feel no attachment to that which has been gained (i.e., jhana ecstasy and serenity gained through meditation). "
