Is there a way to navigate to these suttas in refferences online or one needs this physical books to get to them? (As I understand the refferences are to actualy physical books with suttas)
If no, are there PDF’s of this books or can they be got only in physical copies? If I could only get a name or number of a sutta I could get to them easily on SuttaCentral, but as far as I understand the abbreviations in this text (and many more I encountered) are to pages of physical volumes rather than sutta numbers? I might be mistaken.
Sorry if this is a newbie quesion. I know there are different numerations sometimes on suttacentral and PTS, but I think this reffers to physical books which I don’t own thats why I ask. Please forgive me my ignorance.
Btw. the article by Ajahn Brahmali is very interseting that’s why I would love to delve deeper into suttas reffered to.
Thank you so much Bhante for links and solution. This is most useful and a perfect tool to this situation, and it will help me a lot in my study. I hope this will be useful to other forum members as well.
I was also wondering, maybe links to these tools or this tool itself could be put somewhere on SuttaCentral.net for example in page about Numbering or Abbreviations? It was the place I intuitively started looking for such converter first.
Bhante @Sujato and @Gillian (as a mod) I would like to put this to your awareness for consideration. Please forgive me for taking your precious time, but I thought it might be useful for benefit of other people who might have similar situation.
