What would really be nice, in addition to translating the Chinese stuff, is if the Tibetan Agama material would also be translated. It is a shame that the Tibetan opted not to include a full Agama collection in their Kangyur, but there is, nonetheless, a fair amount of material just waiting to be translated, and I would hope it would be done along the lines of Lamotte's translations.Sylvester wrote:His forthcoming work (with Bucknell) on the translation of the complete Madhyama Agama from Chinese to English would be a fantastic supplement to this present work.
Keep your eyes peeled. 2012 should be a bumper year, what with Vol 1 of the said translation scheduled for print, as well as BB's AN translation.
