Looking for free copyright Itivuttaka

Hi, I’m looking for english translation of Itivuttaka without any copyright. (Really free without any requirements. Older translation is okay but I prefer new one)

Does anyone know where I can get it? :thinking:

There is the Thanissaro Bhikkhu translation at: https://www.dhammatalks.org
That’s under a creative commons licence, which I don’t think imposes a lot of restrictions (mostly needing attribution and describing changes if one does alter things from the original).


There’s also the John Ireland translation which can be downloaded in a variety of formats at ReadingFaithfully


Thank you… :grin:


So, John Ireland’s translation is also on Sutta Central (that’s where the ebook came from). But it’s very much under copyright.

But it may work for your purposes.

I’m not familiar with an Itivuttaka that is both modern and public domain. I believe Bhante Sujato is planning on doing one.


Yes, I’ll be starting my iti translation soon, it’s next on my list!


Sounds great, I’ll waiting for your work Bhante @sujato:grin:
