Is there a freely available PDF translation of Vimuttimagga by Nyanatusita?

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.

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.

Hi there everyone! I just looked for a PDF of the “new” Vimuttimagga by Nyanatusita myself and I am very happy to report that there is now a free PDF version you can download on the official website here:

It seems that only the first book is available right now, but you will get almost 70% of the main text because the PDF ends at page 512 and at page 752 the appendices start.

It looks like PDFs of both volumes of Ven. Nyanatusita’s translation are now available on the publisher’s website:
