One of my favorite things is sutta commentary.
Is anyone familiar sutta commentary resources—past or present—like papers, books, audio, or perhaps translations of the original commentaries?
I know of a few:
I want to get the SuttaNipata from Wisdom Publications for its extensive commentary, and I might eventually purchase a hardcopy of the Visuddhimagga.
Your suggestions would be appreciated.
Off the top of my head Bodhi has a book on the Mulapariyaya and its commentaries
Thank you, @mikenz66 and @Javier!
Updated link to Piya Tan’s Sutta Discovery series, one of my favorite resources. Tan also has a YouTube channel.
‘Beyond the Tipiṭaka: A Field Guide to Post-canonical Pāḷi Literature’ was originally published on Access to Insight in 2002, and updated and republished in 2016 on ancient-buddhist-texts.net. The Wiki on Atthakatha (Pali for commentary) covers similar information.
sirimangalo.org has a large collection of pdfs—including all four parts of ‘Buddhist Stories from the Dhammapada Commentary’—tucked away on their pdf page. Many of the translations are quite old.
Ven. Dhammavuddho Thero has a series of video discourses on the Nikayas on YouTube with additional resources on vbgnet.org.
In 2008, Ven. Bhikkhu Bodhi gave 40 talks on the Sutta-Nipāta at Bodhi Monastery.
I recall Ven. Henepola Gunaratana giving many talks on the suttas about 10 years ago, but I can’t find where I originally heard them. Trekmentor and bhavana.us appear to have mirrors.
