      Dear friends,

      many thanks to Piya and John, we now have an updated version of
      Anapanasati Sutta trilinear edition. It is now available in the Files
      section:

      http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Pali/files/thepalicentre/anapanasati.zip

      This is an excellent piece of work for the reason that we can learn
      Pali and meditation at the same time.


      metta,
      Yong Peng.
