The Chapter on the Mundane Path in the Sravakabhumi

Postby pueraeternus » Sun Feb 19, 2012 7:59 pm

This is an excellent and comprehensive analysis on the Laukikamarga of the Sravakabhumi by Florin Deleanu. I borrowed it once from NYU's Interlibrary loan, but was unable to renew it as it didn't allow renewals. Hence, I was only able to make copies of some of the more interesting pages. Comes in 2 volumes, tons of footnotes, in-depth research that reminds me of Lamotte.

I have been searching high and low for it (even on resources such as library.nu when it was around), but no one is selling it. Appreciate it if anyone could let me know if there is some way to purchase it. It will be expensive but I won't mind shelling out money as it is worth it. Borrowing it (again) won't be a good option, as it will be used more as a reference.

When I set out to lead humanity along my Golden Path I promised a lesson their bones would remember. I know a profound pattern humans deny with words even while their actions affirm it. They say they seek security and quiet, conditions they call peace. Even as they speak, they create seeds of turmoil and violence.

I really appreciate your swift reply, ratna. I will email them to see how I can arrange for a purchase once the reprint is out.

Unfortunately, it tends to say that for years and years. However, I noticed electronic copies recently were posted to scribd.

Thanks and noted. I emailed them and their reply was that they do not know when it will be reprinted. So they asked me to check the website and email them again once it is reprinted.

I didn't manage to find anything on scribd on this text (except for references to it). Do you happen to remember how you got to those electronic copies?

Greg,

I have also been searching for this article by Walpola Rahula for the longest time. Thanks for leading me to it!

You're welcome. Guhyaprajñāmitra has published many documents on related topics that are very hard to get otherwise. Worth looking over his whole collection if you have not already.

Yes, indeed I have. His collection is well spread out among the major traditions and seems to reflect an ecumenical approach.
