According to the Wisdom page in the part of the Buddha Teachings , the Anguttara Nikaya is in the review process . Apparently Bhikkhu Bodhi completed the translation .

Greetings Mike,

That is cool... it's a positive wholesome thought to bring to mind when forking over our cash to Amazon etc. - a thought that is much preferable to, and more beneficial than an unwholesome "the Dhamma should be free" whinge.

Metta,
Retro. :)

Hi Mike, Retro, all,

How much do you think Wisdom would need from a wealthy donor in order to allow a electronic copy for Free Distribution so people could copy and paste suttas onto DhammaWheel? I guess this is an occasion to remember the wonderful generosity of John Bullitt at Access to Insight for his unpaid publishing efforts.

Thanks / dhammapal.

:woohoo:

Excellent news!

Just ordered a copy. I already have the PTS version and refer to it and study it frequently. By far the best Nikaya, in my opinion. The last of the four primary Nikayas to be translated by Bhikkhu Bodhi, he has saved the best for last.

Just saw in the preview that according to an analysis of Canon, the AN has more Suttas regarding lay people than any other Nikaya; although not that surprising since it has the most Suttas.

PTS did a great job, but it will be nice to see the update to modern English in this translation and if there are any other differences.

Just ordered a copy too. Though the postage is a killer if you want it to arrive promptly in Oz. :tongue:

Greetings Ben,

WAIT!

No doubt you'll get it cheaper from Book Depository closer to the release date.

Great News.

The Thematic Guide available on the book web page is interesting. Similar to, but with some variations on, the thematic divisions used in "In the Buddha's Words", which I've always found extremely helpful in making sense out of the Sutta Pitaka.

Of the four major Nikayas this is -- in my opinion -- the most intertersting and provocative. It is probably a good thing it was translated last and that Ven Bodhi built upon Ven Nynanaponika's translation.
