Thank you so much, Bhante! Your writings are very helpful.
Gain and loss, status and disgrace,
censure and praise, pleasure and pain:
these conditions among human beings are inconstant,
impermanent, subject to change.

Knowing this, the wise person, mindful,
ponders these changing conditions.
Desirable things don’t charm the mind,
undesirable ones bring no resistance.

His welcoming and rebelling are scattered,
gone to their end,
do not exist.

Thank you, Bhante!

The last few were just added, which just about completes the set. The War On Error PDF has now been added.

I have added a section to "Ethical Dilemmas" and made some minor changes to "The Heart of Buddhism."

Edited to update information.

Just a note, you have one titled "An Explanation to Rebirth" but it should be "An Explanation of Rebirth."

Again, thank you so much for these writings. Sadhu!

And in case that link is not working either, you can find An Alternative Mirror on my SofterViews domain.
Just a very minor detail, in your list on this site has a slight typo: the link is "An Explanation to Rebirth" instead of "An Explanation OF Rebirth."

I enjoyed reading the Porisada story. My mother used to call me Porisada when I was a kid! :jedi: :)
I did not know the meaning of this until I read Ven. Pesala’s publication. This is the first time I read this story in its complete context.
It is a very inspirational story.

I have been updating my own books on aiimwell.org again using PagePlus X7.
Some minor corrections were made, and those marked with + signs were extended a bit
I am in the process of creating a mirror of my site using Serif™ WebPlus X5 too, which is why I am checking these old books and updating them.

More later ...

Having done wrong to someone, one has difficulty to acknowledge his good deeds. Because then one is reminded of what one has done.
I just wanted to say, I am sure you are doing great works. Sadhu, Bhante. Thank you. May it be put to good use.
