Postby A. Bhikkhu » Wed Jul 26, 2017 1:00 pm

Dear community,
does anybody happen to know of a specific monastery in Thailand which has the tipitaka in English, preferebly the PTS publications? Especially I would like being able to find (for lent): Niddesa, Pathisambhidā Magga and the Netti. Thank you so much.

There are several libraries in Bangkok which house the PTS translations, but I believe in all of them they are for reference only. I don't know of any which allows them to be borrowed.

    • Wat Boworniwet, Phra Sumen Road (in both the International Section Library and Mahamakut University Library).
    • Wat Mahathat, Maharat Road (in the Mahachula University Library).
    • Siam Society, Asok Montri Road.
    • World Fellowship of Buddhists, Sukhumvit Road.
    • Dhamma Study and Support Foundation, (มูลนิธิศึกษาและเผยแพร่พระพุทธศาสนา), Soi Charoen Nakhorn, Bukkalo.

Bhikkhu Bodhi's translation of the Niddesa (which is the only English translation) will be coming out at the end of September.

As for the Paṭisambhidāmagga / "Path of Discrimination" and the Nettippakaraṇa / "The Guide", there are scanned copies of these available online, albeit in violation of the PTS's copyright terms.

Thank you bhante. I think I will try to contact a monk at Wat Boworn, since I believe it might lent under less formal circumstances as one might expect the universities and the like would do. The copies around in the net are no option for me though due to their status ...

May you be blessed. :anjali:

Thank you, yes, I personally totally agree! That is the reason I am searching for the actual books (not copies) from the PTS ...
