1550Re: Sutta Translation: Word by Word, Buddhaghosa.
- Jan 1, 2003Dear Nina and friends,
thanks for the info. For the sutta translation, let's take a step at
a time. For your comments on Buddhaghosa, I share similar respect for
him and his works. In fact, one of the main reason I learn pali is to
be able to read many pali texts (such as Buddhaghosa's) not yet
available in English, and since I do not know Thai, Sinhala and
Burmese, it will be best to learn pali.

the texts. Then we can see Buddhaghosa's devotion to preserving the
integrity of the teachings, his insistance on vipassanaa pa~n~naa,
understanding the khandhas, dhaatus, ayatanas.
