Hi,

Time for an introduction, I suppose.

My name is Kåre Albert Lie, and I live in Norway. I first got interested in buddhism around 1970. I studied Pali on my own (using mainly Warder), and later Pali and Sanskrit at the University in Oslo. I got my first real introduction to meditation from the Burmese teacher U Janaka.

I have translated several Pali and Sanskrit texts into Norwegian, and I have also written some books on meditation, abhidhamma and other aspects of buddhism ... also in Norwegian. At present I hope that my translation of the Digha Nikaya will be published this year, and I have started translating the Majjhima Nikaya - a task that I hope to finish in two or three years.

So I'm mainly a Theravada follower. But I also find inspiration in parts of the Mahayana, and I have translated the Bodhicaryavatara into Norwegian, and also published a book with a translation of Vasubandhu's Madhyantavibhaga, with an introduction and comments by myself and a friend who was a teacher in the Thich Nhat Hanh tradition.

Welcome friend !

_________________
Abandoning Dharma is, in the final analysis, disparaging the Hinayana because of the Mahayana; favoring the Hinayana on account of the Mahayana; playing off sutra against tantra; playing off the four classes of the tantras against each other; favoring one of the Tibetan schools—the Sakya, Gelug, Kagyu, or Nyingma—and disparaging the rest; and so on. In other words, we abandon Dharma any time we favor our own tenets and disparage the rest.
