Section 452

Post by tharpa »

This is the next in my humble series.

The vast majority of the Tipitika has been translated into English, but not the entirety. There are one or two (at least) books that have not been translated. There is also a lot of repetition that has been elided (replaced with ellipses). For casual study this is fine and was a practical necessity of the publisher, but for formal chanting (as I have been doing since the '80's), it is imperfect. In particular, The Path of Discrimination has a large portion elided, as it has a lot of repetition.

When I got to Chapter XXXIV, Attainment of Cessation, Section 452, second paragraph, I saw that there was another large portion of text that had been elided. So I recreated the missing portion, and posted it at http://www.chozang.net/452.html. (The list so far is at http://chozang.net/suttas.html.)

This post (and the link it contains) is for the sake of the very few (if any) in the present or future who might see a value in it.

Namo tassa bhagavato

May all beings, in or out of the womb, be well, happy and peaceful.
