This month I’ve added information to the library on the four main Nikayas (the Digha, Majjhima, Saṃyutta, and Aṅguttara) along with their parallel Āgamas (the Dīrgha, Madhyama, Saṃyukta, and Ekottarika).

In particular, I’d like to highlight this free anthology of Bhikkhu Bodhi’s Majjhima Nikāya translations along with Bhikkhu Analayo’s thorough comparative analysis of the Majjhima Nikāya both of which are jewels of contemporary scholarship.

I’d also like to highlight a few beautiful poems which I’ve added to the library this month:

Forget you. This is about waiting

I give you back 1948.

… indeed there is no thing there

I swear, you will wake–
& mistake these walls
for skin.

I hope you enjoy them as much as I have and, as always, feel free to email me with any questions or comments you may have.

Best wishes,
The Librarian
Khemarato Bhikkhu
