Have they translated the entire Tipitaka into English?

Postby Dugu » Wed Oct 28, 2009 1:20 am

I have some of Bhikkhu Bodhi's translations, but it isn't complete and I hear he has retired. :( So I am wondering are there other translations in English of the entire Tipitaka?

Cool. Since I already have portions of the Tipitaka, I wonder if they would let me order specific volumes to complete my collection. But it really is sad that Bhikkhu Bodhi retired, I like his works and the layouts. I hope someone will continue where he left off and finish the remaining books.

Is there a reason why they are retranslated by Bhikkhu Bodhi since they already have it in English... ?

What is Mr. Maurice Walshe up to these days? Think we can convince him to have a crack at the Khuddaka Nikaya?

:anjali:
"For a disciple who has conviction in the Teacher's message & lives to penetrate it, what accords with the Dhamma is this:
'The Blessed One is the Teacher, I am a disciple. He is the one who knows, not I." -

There are various translations of the books of the Khuddaka Nikaya.
In particular, there are dozens of the Dhammapada (often terrible, often free...).
I like John Ireland's translation of the Udana and the Itivuttaka (available as one volume).
The Sutta Nipata is very interesting. Unfortunately the print versions I know about seem rather expensive for the size. Most of it is on Access to Insight, otherwise at
