JE Carpenter, digha nikaya

Post by salayatananirodha » Wed Sep 19, 2018 3:04 am

Anyone have information on this translator? https://www.amazon.com/Digha-Nikaya-J-C ... gha+nikaya
I couldn't find anything using google but its a great price comparatively and it seems rather difficult to find a full DN outside of Walshe
if anyone has comments on walshe, share them here too. His I guess are what suttacentral primarily uses
16. 'In what has the world originated?' — so said the Yakkha Hemavata, — 'with what is the world intimate? by what is the world afflicted, after having grasped at what?' (167)

17. 'In six the world has originated, O Hemavata,' — so said Bhagavat, — 'with six it is intimate, by six the world is afflicted, after having grasped at six.' (168)

- Hemavatasutta

it probably is

17. 'In six the world has originated, O Hemavata,' — so said Bhagavat, — 'with six it is intimate, by six the world is afflicted, after having grasped at six.' (168)

He was a Unitarian minister and Sanskrit scholar. He assisted Thomas Rhys Davids with the editing of the romanised Pali editions of the Dīgha Nikāya and its commentary, but I don't think he translated any Pali texts.

The other Dīgha Nikāya translations beside Walshe's are those of Th. Rhys Davids and the Burmese Sāsanā Piṭaka Association.
