Nanavira's Works in the US

Post by Idappaccayata » Fri Sep 14, 2018 12:42 am

Hello, does someone know where I could get print copies of Nanavira's work in the US, specifically notes on Dhamma? Is that a good start to his work? I've been intrigued by reading old posts.

I found them available on path press, but shipping would be more than the book. Which is fine, I just figured I'd check if anyone knew any other options first.

Thanks!

It finds within that cage

Yes... Notes On Dhamma is his primary text. Letters is also very insightful.

Notes On Dhamma + Letters = Clearing The Path... which was linked to in PDF format above.

I can't help you with US sourcing, but I bought my copy of each from the Buddist Cultural Centre Online Bookshop in Sri Lanka... the prices were so cheap, that even with postage it was still very reasonable. It may be worth a look there?

Thank you very much, Paul. I just placed an order.
