Simple map of the Buddha's India

Post by BKh » Fri May 25, 2018 4:54 pm

New on ReadingFaithfully.org:
As we read the suttas, it’s important that we remember that these teachings were given to real people in real places. And the location of those places are known and can even be visited today. Many suttas begin by telling us exactly where they were given.

To help us get a better picture of where things are happening, you can now download a simple map you can print out and keep close by where you do your sutta reading practice. You can even use it as a bookmark so you get in the habit of checking where the suttas you read take place.

Check out the article Living in the Land of the Buddha to find the downloads.
Thanks for the feedback that folks gave in the creation of this map.

I'd love to hear about how people use a map when they read. I've gotten in the habit of using it as a standard handout in classes I give and make a habit of pointing out where suttas happen.

Hi,
Just sharing an old map based on a book published in 1950s by a Burmese monk (in Burmese, with Remarks from Superintendent of Archeological Survey at the time).

Too deep for me :-)
Still, it may be quite valuable if some scholars translate it into English, if not yet done so.

Here is a map from Suttacentral/Bhante Sujato: Announcing a map of the Buddha’s India.

Here is, from Bhikkhu Anandajoti: Maps of Ancient India (PDF).

Greetings,

Some posts have been split into a new topic...

The origin of the Upanishads and their absence in the Pali Suttas

:thanks:

Metta,
