Buddha_in_his_words.pdf
Buddha_in_his_words.pdfThe Buddha’s Teaching In His Own Words 1450 viewsThe present Wheel booklet contains Chapter 12 of Bhikkhu Nanmoli’s classic compilation, The Life of the Buddha according to the Pali Canon. The purpose of that book, now in print for 27 years, had been to construct a biography of the Buddha by piecing together all the relevant material scattered throughout the Vinaya and the Sutta Pitakas. Since the Buddha’s life was in many respects inseparable from his teaching, Ven. Nanamoli had included, in the middle of the book, an anthology of texts dealing with the teaching, which he entitled “The Doctrine”.Nov 15, 2013

Begin_Pali_Suttas.pdfBeginnings: The Pali Suttas1512 viewsExcept where otherwise noted, all factual information in this essay is garnered from the Pāḷi Suttas and their companion-piece, the Vinaya. In these texts we find accounts of the first months following the Buddha’s awakening (Khandhaka I, Mahāvagga, Vinaya), of the final months before his decease (Sutta 16, Dīgha Nikāya), of the events leading up to the First and Second Councils, together with an account of those Councils (Khandhakas XI and XIi, Cullavagga, Vinaya), and, scattered through the texts, incidental information and clues about the middle period of the Buddha’s ministry. Considerable additional information is available in texts of later date, such as the Classical Commentaries. Nov 15, 2013

honourfathers.pdf
honourfathers.pdfHonor Our Fathers821 viewsThis book is intended primarily as a tribute to the late Venerable Kapilavaddho Bhikkhu (William August Purfurst, known later as Richard Randall) for whom the English Sangha Trust was formed. He stands out as a man who started and developed the founding of the first English Theravada Sangha in the Western world. For the sake of context it includes a very brief history of the development of Theravada Buddhism in the UK. Only the major steps of this development have been recorded here, though many other groups have contributed to the spreading of Buddhism in the UK.Sep 25, 2013

vandana02.pdfVandana: Pali Devotional Chanting2523 viewsIt is beneficial for every Buddhist to recite daily and learn Pali at least a few verses from the Vandana, recalling to mind the sublime qualities of the Buddha, Dhamma and the Sangha.

vandana.pdf
vandana.pdfBhavana Vandana - Book of Devotion2685 viewsThe purpose of this book is manifold. One is to teach the users of this Vandana book how to pronounce Pali words correctly. By the daily repetition of these Pali verses and Suttas people can learn the Pali pronunciation without much effort. Secondly we intend to teach people the Pali language without much toil. Therefore we made one half of our chanting in English, so people learn the meaning of what they chant in Pali and later on they can compare the English with the Pali. Thirdly, we intend to teach people Dhamma through devotional service. In order to fulfill all these purposes we decided to include certain Suttas which are not normally used in Viharas for vandana service.

paligram.pdf
paligram.pdfA Grammar of the Pali Language3644 viewsMost introductory Pali grammar books consist of lessons that teach the elements of the language in stages, but because of that they are also very difficult to use as a reference when you need to look up a noun's declension, or a verb's conjugation. Because of its practical and comprehensive coverage of the elements of the Pali language in complete chapters, this book is a very useful reference. It was not written for linguistics experts, but for students with little experiences tudying Pali grammar.Sep 19, 2013
