As I was reading the
mysterious case of The Breath Nimitta, I came across the mention of a new Vimuttimagga translation by Nyanatusita that has been improved and refined across. While the draft translation by by Ehara, Soma, and Kheminda avaiable as a scanned pdf, I seem to only be able to find Nyanatusita translation sold as a product.
If someone know a freely available PDF translation of Vimuttimagga by Nyanatusita or any other non-drafty complete translation, please let me know. Thanks!

I also don’t know if a scanned copy is available. We purchased a copy from the publisher in Hong Kong.
Yes, it came, though for those who want it quickly, perhaps do not choose the “sea mail” option
. I originally ordered it around late October or early November. It eventually arrived around early February (about 3 months).
It comes in two rather solid and well-put-together volumes (I took two images with my phone and have attached to give an idea). Each maybe similar in weight to one of the Wisdom Pali Canon volumes (over 500 pages in the first and around 400 in the second). Ther…
It’s available on the BPS website:
Regarding the PDF on BPS website I see that it’s translation by Ehara, Soma, and Kheminda.
Thank Venerables. Foreign commerce in Vietnam is horrendous, but I’ll try to get one in Hong Kong via sea mail also

Indeed, this is the old one.
There is an electronic (PDF, HTML, ePub) version of the older (Some & Kheminda Theras) translation available at
Visuddhimagga — digital (at the very bottom of the page; has some limitations, as it is OCR’d; the Pali footnotes might contain some mistakes, but the English text is good). Sadly, the Nyanatusita’s translation does not seem to be available electronically.
