      Dear Flavio,
      you are right that "Wings to Awakening" is a poetic translation. i was not
      aware that it is the "common" translation for bodhi-pakkhiya-dhamma. If you
      want as complete an introduction to the 37 factors as you can get i suggest
      that you buy a copy of "The Buddhist Path to Awakening" by R M L Gethin,
      published last year by Oneworld books. It is available through Amazon in
      paperback. It was Dr Gethin's PhD thesis at Manchester University in England
      and is comprehensive account of the textual references to the 37 factors,
      covered by each factor and by group of factors. It is a wonderfully written
      book and it has been very helpful to me in coming to appreciate the
      interwoven complexity of the Buddha's teaching.

      Cheers
