Giving away lots of PDF Books for free

Post by Stiphan » Fri Mar 16, 2012 11:06 am

Yesterday, I uploaded on my website nearly all of the PDF Dhamma books I had collected on my computer over time. I was reminded by Ven. Pesala about copyright restrictions, and so I have removed documents that clearly stated were not to be freely distributed.

Books include: Visuddhimagga, Vimuttimagga, Abhidhammattha Sangaha, Mindfulness in Plain English, and many more.

The link is: http://www.stefan.gr/buddhism" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

If you want to add to that list, send me a PDF and I will upload it.

Well done, Stefan!
Congratulations on your meritorious efforts.

“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”

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

Sadhu! Excellent!

Great site, thank you.

You may want to add Ven. Dhammika's:

I believe it is okay to upload it or you could put it as a link, if interested.

Strangely, Kaspersky has flagged that link as being a malicious "phishing" url.

Is there one written by Buddha himself or dictated by him?
