Ven. Ñāṇamoli’s Manuscript of the Majjhima Nikāya Published

Postby nyanasuci » Sun Sep 22, 2013 5:21 am

Path Press published for the first time the complete manuscript of Ven. Ñāṇamoli’s translation of the Majjhima Nikāya, The Middle Length Discourses of the Buddha, one of the major collections in the Sutta Piṭaka.

The experts do not say that one is a sage in this world because of view, or learning, or knowledge, Nanda.
I call them sages who wander without association, without affliction, without desire.

Thank you, Bhante.

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Yes, it is quite interesting too look into Ven. Nanamoli's original translation. He was really very good translator, and it is quite unfortunate that he didn't live long enough to finish it.

The publisher of Path Press Publications is also interested to prepare a typescript of the manuscript because Ven. Nanamoli's new style is quite remarkable. If anyone is interested to type some of these sutta, let me know.

Dear Bhante,

Preparing a typescript of the manuscript sounds like a long-term project. Does Path Press have any plans to make the manuscript available as a CD or as an e-book in the interim? If so, I'd love to order a copy.
