Will Ajahn Brahm’s new translation be made available? I really enjoyed it!

Edit: Especially from 19:15 to 19:40:

"Furthermore, it is hard to embrace this truth: namely the stilling and disappearance of the will, the relinquishing of everything that has been acquired, the destruction of wanting, everything fading away, cessation, nibbana.

There are beings with little dust in their eyes who are wasting through not hearing this Dhamma. There will be those who will understand this Dhamma."

Found this to be particularly beautiful :slight_smile:

I couldn’t find it on the dhammaloka website.

He should procrastinate a bit on this.

Now that Ajahn Sujato has finished making contemporary and non-academic reader friendly translations of the Nikayas Ajahn Brahm will already have most of the work done for him.

Is current draft available to read by download?
I see that in December 2019 that there are sutta classes on Ajahn Brahm’s translation of Venerable Nyanatiloka’s book on YouTube.

He is looking to get it published in printed format at the moment, and is not available to read via download at the moment. It is a revised version of the stuff he has gone through before on the website.

IMHO it is fabulous :smiley:
