Buddhism (Suttanta)?

Postby legolas » Thu Feb 10, 2011 8:26 am

As this forum is "Meditation (Suttanta Method)" I thought I might shout my appreciation for the site "Access to Insight". Of all resources on the net, this is truly the jewel. A big special thankyou to John T Bullitt - the founder of the site - The merit this guy must have accumulated by making the Buddha's sutta's available to the world must be immense. he also knows his stuff about whats important....................



Which brings me to the question. Is there room for a forum entitled Buddhism (Suttanta)? Restricting it just to meditation is a bit limiting as meditation was not the main priority for most laypeople that the Buddha taught and many of those people achieved Noble distinction.

Or are we going to ask for English translations to triumph over the Pali texts, without regard to the Pali grammars and idiom?

Heaven forbid.

I've now too nervous to use the English translations on ATI, save perhaps for a few "traditional" translators featured there.
