The Buddhist Scriptures (with translation in Marathi)

by Achala (2013)

The talk outlines how the Buddhist scriptures came to be written down and copied. It discusses the place of Pali, and the need to be cautious when reading translations. It is helpful to have some personal favourites that you go into deeply. After studying a text, reciting it out loud can help deepen our appreciation. There is guidance on doing this. The talk finishes with a summary of the Attandanda Sutta.
