French sutta translations by Môhan Wijayaratna

Continuing the discussion from French Translations:

This purpose of this wiki is to compile a list of all sutta translations into French by Môhan Wijayaratna which he included in his anthologies. Please help us update this list as M Wijayaratna’s translations are published across numerous anthologies, most of which are out of print (as are his complete translations of the Dīghanikāya and the Majjhimanikāya).

Not only do these anthologies reflect those suttas which M Wijayaratna considered most important for study; in many of the anthologies – if not all – he includes his own priceless commentary. (Currently I only have Les entretiens du Bouddha and Sermons du Bouddha in my possession.)

Currently the sources include:
Au delà de la mort (Éditions LIS, Paris, 1996)
La philosophie du Bouddha (publishing information forthcoming)
Le dernier voyage du Bouddha (Éditions LIS, Paris, 1998)
Les entretiens du Bouddha: La traduction intégrale de 21 textes du canon bouddhique (Éditions du Seuil, Paris, 2001)
Sermons du Bouddha: La traduction intégrale de 20 textes du canon bouddhique (Editions du Seuil, 2006)


This wiki was initiated by BethL. Currently she uses this format:
(1) MW ADM = Au delà de la mort, MW PDB = La philosophie du Bouddha, MW DVB = Le dernier voyage du Bouddha, MW SDB = Sermons du Bouddha and MW EDB = Les entriens du Bouddha;
(2) A. I 187-191 (Kālāma-sutta) = MW’s Pali Text Society reference, followed by a Pāli sutta name;
(3) L’accès aux libres examens = MW’s thematic naming of the sutta (only in SDB);
(4) AN 3.65 Kesamuttisutta = SuttaCentral’s reference, followed by a Pāli sutta name; and
(5) With the Kālāmas of Kesamutta = Bhante Sujato’s thematic naming of the sutta in SuttaCentral.

Suttas are listed in order of DN, MN, SN, AN, and KN.
