Theravada Buddhism in Dutch: http://www.sleuteltotinzicht.nl/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

This is roughly the Dutch equivalent of http://www.accesstoinsight.org/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

"Sleutel tot Inzicht" is even a rough translation of "Access to Insight". Literally it would mean "Key to Insight".

Hi Kaylee_S,

German speakers are presumably blessed by a wealth of material by Nyanatiloka Mahathera (1878-1957), the first Western Theravada Bhikkhu, translated directly from Pali to German. His student Nyanaponika Thera (1901-1994) was also from Germany.

Of course, I can only read his work in English, but presumably some German versions have by now found their way onto the Internet.

Thank you, I hadn't heard of them before, probably because I prefer to read the English literature.

Here is Nyanatiloka Mahathera's "Buddhist Dictionary", available as a PDF:
http://www.wat-lao.org/Bibliothek/index ... thera.html

And a website where one can download lots of different dhamma books in German:
http://www.dhamma-dana.de/

"An important term for meditative absorption is samadhi. We often translate that as concentration, but that can suggest a certain stiffness. Perhaps unification is a better rendition, as samadhi means to bring together. Deep samadhi isn't at all stiff. It's a process of letting go of other things and coming to a unified experience." - Bhikkhu Anālayo

Found 2 chinese Theravada sites. They seem quite extensive but unfortunately, I don't read the language.
