Forest Sangha Publications

Postby theravada_guy » Wed Nov 30, 2011 11:08 pm

Greetings all,

I just now discovered the Forest Sangha portal Web site along with the publications section. Most of the books look like they're only available as "epub" and "mobi" files. What are these? Why aren't they in PDF format, which, I wish they'd work on putting them into.

Thanks.
With metta,

Justin

To study is to know the texts,
To practice is to know your defilements,
To attain the goal is to know and let go.

- Ajahn Lee Dhammadharo


With mindfulness immersed in the body
well established, restrained
with regard to the six media of contact,
always centered, the monk
can know Unbinding for himself.

- Ud 3.5

Does anyone know where I can download this ePub thing? I looked on Wikipedia, and it said it was a free program. But I when I went to the Web site, I couldn't find where to download it.

The heart of the path is quite easy. There’s no need to explain anything at length. Let go of love and hate and let things be. That’s all that I do in my own practice.

Awesome! After some figuring out of the program and how to get the files into the reader, it worked. Thank you, very very much! :anjali:

Would anyone know why I get a question mark (?) in some Pali words when I read the ePubs in Adobe Digital Editions? How can I fix this?

Thanks.

Possibly:

But ADE randomly displays question marks inside words

This is because your original file has soft hyphens. ADE doesn't handle those. So just remove these soft hyphens from your file and the question marks will go away. Look for something like ­ or ‑. Basically anything "strange" that exists between those two characters. But you have to look in the HTML.
