    I just realized there is a seperate subforum for suttas so I'm gonna post suttas there from now on.
    But most people come to this subforum so I created this thread to post the links to them.

    Sometimes I encounter suttas that is so good it is hard not to share them.
    I hope there are other people out there who have the passion in reading and studying suttas.

    Here's what I have shared so far. Cheers to all

    May I suggest you write a short commentary for every sutta to share your understanding and lessons learnt. That will help summarise the essence of each sutta as you understood.

    I have thought about that bro but my understanding is still imperfect. Even after reading one several times over and over. And I find that a reader focuses on different lessons the sutta provides. A sutta can have more than one messege to impart. So i leave it up to the reader what he takes with him from reading it.
    I share just what I have personally read and found meaning in.
    When a summary or introduction of the sutta is provided by the translator I also include that.

    I was encouraged to read suttas by Ajahn Keng of Wat Palelai. He also encouraged me to ask him questions. But he is also told me if he is unsure of how to answer a question he would rather not answer than tell me something that is incorrect or partially incorrect which would be detrimental to me and himself.
    Likewise I would rather not bring my own understanding of the suttas. It is for the reader to reflect upon, or if he is unclear about a point then better to ask a teacher or master.

    Just a correction. It is Bhante Seng. He gave time to give instructions even though his health was failing. I am grateful to him.
