English Translation of the Sutta Pitaka freely available!

It looks like the Pali Text Society has made available the entire English translation of the Sutta Pitaka in digital format for free!

This is absolutely fantastic. I am totally flabbergasted and most thankful to the Pali Text Society.

Awesome. :thumbsup:

I have just included that site in the Google Saffron Theravada Search Engine - http://www.google.com/cse/home?cx=00545 ... cbjbznmwso

Through corruption of the Dhamma comes corruption of the discipline, and from corruption of the discipline comes corruption of the Dhamma. This is the first future danger as yet unarisen that will arise in the future. You should recognize it and make an effort to prevent it. (AN 5.79)

"If you stand up and be counted, from time to time you may get yourself knocked down. But remember this: A man flattened by an opponent can get up again. A man flattened by conformity stays down for good." - Thomas J. Watson

Never again...

Best to be aware that many of these translations are around eighty to a hundred years old - the language and grammar can be a little different to what you are used to.
