      Pali Friends,

      Those interested in the history of Buddhism would be happy to know
      that Ajahn Sujato (Australia), a forest
      monk of Ajahn Chah's lineage, has written an excellent and refreshing
      account of how the early Buddhist
      schools were formed.

      Sujato disagrees with

      In his Supplementary paper on "Chronology" he rejects Cousins and
      Gombrich's proposal that the Second
      Council is 60-80 After the Nirvana. It would be interesting to hear from Lance.

      Also do not miss reading the Supplementary articles are very
      interesting in themselves. I especially like his
      Supplementary article on "A higher criticism of archaeology" which is
      an answer to Schopen and his "deeply
      programmatic attempt to undermine the findings of Buddhist textual studies".

      Happy reading,

      Piya Tan
