13946Re: [Pali] First Sermon of Buddha
- Oct 6, 2009Dear Gaby,
I have a small, old, delicate book in my labrary, an English translation titled The First Disclosure of the Buddha published in 1972 by the Most Ven. Narada Maha Thera which I presume will serve your purpose. Ven Narada is a well known Sri Lankan Buddhist scholar who is the author of the excellent work titled The Buddha and his Teachings a work not only very useful as an introduction to Buddhism to the new student of Buddhism as well as an excellent, comprehensive guide-line to Buddhism to the advanced scholar on which a deeper study could be undertaken.
If I am able to buy a new copy of the said translation of the First Disclosure I could post it to you. Otherwise I will try to scan the old delicate copy and email it to you.
Please inform if you still need it.
May the Buddha Dhamma guide and protect you!

Dear Dhamma Friends,
I am looking for a traditional Classical pali commentary on the root text of the First Sermon of Buddha "Dhamma Cakra Pavartan Sutta". By traditional I mean a commentary that explain the meaning of the dhamma in it but also the etimology and meaning of the words in the sutra. Thus exist such a commentary in pali language? If yes, thus it has an english translation of the same too?
I have a friend in Thailand that could send me the texts if just available there.
Thanks very much for any help.
