are the same Sutta. If it is possible for this translation to be added to Suttacentral, that would be swell! If it is possible, I would happily do any work that is required for this to be done. And if it is possible and someone else wants to do the work, that’s quite all right.
I suspect that there might be information I am missing here, my apologies.
Thank you all for the amazing work you’ve done in making this website and making the Dhamma available to all!
P. S. As an aside, what’s up with the numbering mismatch between accesstoinsight.org (SN 35.204) and y’alls (SN 35.245)?
It’s not my place to comment on general policy, but since Thanissaro Bhikkhu’s translations are being actively updated (see link below) it makes more sense to go there to read them directly there than to have a snapshot on Sutta Central.
Because it takes time and effort and adds little value.
Yes, indeed, thanks for the correction.
We have a pretty large percentage of all the legacy translations that have been done in most languages!
Also a good point. The process of adding suttas is manual, so our versions will be outdated. In fact, maybe we should note this on our Thanissaro translations and point folks to dhammatalks.org for up-to-date versions.
That’s correct. Thanissaro’s approach is quite different to that on SC, it’a a matter of levels of understanding due to generation and background. If a practitioner finds empathy with Thanissaro they should confine themselves to his method.
Well… I just came in to this forum, made an account, read what I needed to, did maybe 5 minutes of research to try and answer my questions, and then asked. So, you are right that I was correctly missing information. But the information I was referring to was the content policy of SuttaCentral. I didn’t even know where to look for it (or even what it was!). I was on a mission.
You do have a good point that it can be skillful to follow one translator that resonates, or perhaps even one teacher if that was what you where intending. Though always going back to the Buddha. ^^
