      Dear Yong Peng and Group,

      Here is my selection of
      translations for Recollection of the Buddha, Dhamma and Sangha:

      I have mixed together translations from MN41 and AN11:12
      (Thanissaro Bhikkhu) and SN11:3 (Bhikkhu Bodhi) and replaced
      "Tathagata" with "Buddha". I have replaced "passion" with
      "lust or greed"
      Sometimes I have changed the present tense to the past tense
      because the Buddha has passed away.

      "Now a good report of Buddha has been spread to this effect:

      'That Blessed One was an arahant, perfectly enlightened,
      accomplished in true knowledge & conduct, fortunate,
      an expert with regard to the world,
      unsurpassed leader for those people fit to be tamed,
      the Teacher of devas & humans,
      the Enlightened One, the Blessed One.'

      He taught a Dhamma that is good in the beginning,
      good in the middle and good in the end
      with the right meaning and phrasing,
      he affirmed a holy life that is utterly perfect and pure.'"

      "At any time when a disciple of the noble ones is recollecting the Buddha,
      his mind is not overcome with lust or greed, not overcome with aversion,
      not overcome with delusion.
      His mind heads straight, based on the Buddha.
      And when the mind is headed straight, the disciple of the noble ones
      gains a sense of the goal, gains a sense of the Dhamma,
      gains joy connected with the Dhamma.
      In one who is joyful, rapture arises.
      In one who is rapturous, the body grows calm.
      One whose body is calmed experiences ease.
      In one at ease, the mind becomes concentrated."

      "The Dhamma is well-expounded by the Blessed One, directly visible,
      immediate, inviting one to come and see, applicable,
      to be personally experienced by the wise.'
      At any time when a disciple of the noble ones is recollecting the Dhamma,
      his mind is not overcome with lust or greed, not overcome with aversion,
      not overcome with delusion.
      His mind heads straight, based on the Dhamma.
      And when the mind is headed straight, the disciple of the noble ones
      gains a sense of the goal, gains a sense of the Dhamma,
      gains joy connected with the Dhamma.
      In one who is joyful, rapture arises.
      In one who is rapturous, the body grows calm.
      One whose body is calmed experiences ease.
      In one at ease, the mind becomes concentrated."

      "The Sangha of the Blessed One's disciples is practising the good way,
      practising straight-forwardly,
      practising the true way,
      practising the proper way --
      in other words, the four types of noble disciples when taken as pairs,
      the eight when taken as individual types --
      they are the Sangha of the Blessed One's disciples:
      worthy of gifts, worthy of hospitality, worthy of offerings,
      worthy of respect, the incomparable field of merit for the world.'

      At any time when a disciple of the noble ones is recollecting the Sangha,
      his mind is not overcome with lust or greed, not overcome with aversion,
      not overcome with delusion.
      His mind heads straight, based on the Sangha.
      And when the mind is headed straight,
      the disciple of the noble ones gains a sense of the goal,
      gains a sense of the Dhamma, gains joy connected with the Dhamma.
      In one who is joyful, rapture arises.
      In one who is rapturous, the body grows calm.
      One whose body is calmed experiences ease.
      In one at ease, the mind becomes concentrated."
