Many thanks David.

If there's any way you can give me edit access, I'd be happy to contribute to some of the format tidying, removing excess spaces etc.

Thank you for making that available, David.
I am sure very many Buddhists around the world will benefit from your meritorious efforts.
kind regards,

Ben

Greetings David,

Thanks. I'll have a go at parts 2 & 4.

I think ven. Appicchato may be keen to edit 1, 3, 5.

Greetings David,

I've sent #4 (which was a bit of a mess before) via e-mail but I think #2 is OK as it is... perhaps you'd already updated this one?

I just used Microsoft Word and it seemed to handle the diacritics with no trouble.

I think this sentence from part 2 needs fixing.

"He says that only the magic is not real; the magician’s appur­te­nances are."

Maybe it is ok with "real" being understood at the end?

These interviews have some really great stuff; though my one issue is with the interviewer's portrayal of Ven. Ñānānanda as being considered a 'heretic' - where I feel Bhikkhu Yōgānanda is looking for drama where there is none. As far as I know, Bhante Ñānānanda is thought of very highly by almost everyone who's familiar with him. If there's a reason he's not as well known as some other monks in Sri Lanka (i.e. outside the circles of more 'serious' Buddhists) it's due to the limited circulation of his books rather than him being considered a heretic.
"Delighting in existence, O monks, are gods and men; they are attached to existence, they revel in existence. When the Dhamma for the cessation of existence is being preached to them, their minds do not leap towards it, do not get pleased with it, do not get settled in it, do not find confidence in it. That is how, monks, some lag behind."
- It. p 43

That's great David,

Perhaps when you have time you can put links from your e-books page and your nanananda page.
