Cessation of suffering

I would very much like to discuss the following with you. In the Pali phrase "Yo tassa yeva tanhaya asesa-viraga-nirodho cago patinissaggo mutti analayo" (DN II 310) there are the concepts of patinissaggo (rejecting) and analayo (aversion), which, 'applied' to craving, would mean the cessation of su...

There is also "Pali Buddhist Texts: An Introductory Reader and Grammar", by Rune E.A. Johansson (http://www.accesstoinsight.org/lib/pali.html#johansson). I bought it secondhand from Amazon, it's interesting and seems well researched (but then again I have no knowledge whatsoever of Pali).

I acquired recently the book "Pali Buddhist Texts explained to the beginner" by Rune E.A. Johansson and my question is the following: On ...
