Pali Website Recommendation

Post by Dhammanando » Tue Feb 24, 2009 12:42 am

Greetings,

A recent announcement posted by Jim Anderson to the Yahoo Pali grammar list:
Dear Members,

I'd like to recommend the following website for those who do not already know about it:

Ancient Buddhist Texts

http://www.ancient-buddhist-texts.net/index.htm" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Anandajoti Bhikkhu seeems to be the main one behind it or at least the main contributor. You'll find, for example, a comparative edition of the Dhammapada which shows side by side 4 different versions (Paa.li, Patna, Gandhaarii, Udaanavarga). There is also a revised edition (with a translation) in progress of a grammar based on the Padama~njarii by Ven. Devamitta of Molligoda (first published in 1922). The new work is entitled Navapadama~njarii. The website has a lot of material that will be of interest to students and scholars of Pali texts and translations.

Best wishes,
Jim
