Posted on | May 31, 2014 | 1 Comment

The Great Emancipation

The Discourse about the Great Emancipation is a a newer translation of Mahāparinibbānasutta from the Pali Canon, the Sutta 16th, being the standard Theravada text on the last part of the life of the Buddha and his death. The discourse consists of both historical details and descriptions of advice for meditation techniques, directly given by the Buddha. It is one of the longest discourses from the Canon and it is here The Buddha makes preparations for the preservation of his teaching.

The Discourse about the Great Emancipation is the first of nine books to be posted here in the coming weeks on the topic of meditation instructions in English from the Pali Canon. Download The Discourse about the Great Emancipation here (200 pages/1.6 MB):
