Much gratitude to you Bhante for your meritorious efforts.
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725

I just uploaded A Manual of Donation and Morality (Dānādi Dīpanī) or literally, "A Manual of Donation and so forth.

I omitted a couple of chapters that were not by the Venerable Ledi Sayādaw, which you can find appended to the LibreOffice (original) version.

I just uploaded A Manual of the Requisites of Enlightenment (Bodhipakkhiya Dīpanī). This is based on the BPS edition, but I have added back a large section that was abridged, and changed references to the more precise format used by the PTS.

While still a layman staying at Birmingham Vihāra, and when I was still following the U Ba Khin tradition, I read the Manuals of Buddhism frequently, and especially this one.

As usual, please let me know (email is best) if you find any errors or broken links.
