Title: "Perfection for Enlightenment" by Upasika Sujin
Post by: Johann on February 24, 2018, 09:09:45 AM
My person recently came accross the book and readed some pages.

Citing good and wisely teachings of the Buddha in regard to increase ones paramis, perfections, giving conditions to be able to meet and gain the path.

Just wonder if there is still the owner or heirs avaliable to ask for the use for the Sangha, possible translate it as well.

Not sure if Upasaka Robert K can be reached here, since he might still have connection to here disciple Upasika Nina Van Gorkum.

If someone likes trying to reach, ask, and even progress further, such might be surely good.

Quote from: via email to the owner of a news group around Sujin Boriharnwanaket
Valued Upasaka, Upasika ...,

first of all pardon my persons uninvited approach and may it not of unbenifical disturbance for you.

Some time ago my person came to see a little of "Perfection for Enlightenment", a compilation on Paramis, done by Sujin Boriharnwanaket, as it has been written.

Since it looked like a blessed gift of Dhamma, my person wondered if the owner may be happy to make use of it to share the merits (e.g. the texts) as gift of Dhamma and possible even translate it.

Neither knowing if the author is still alive and would have joy with such, nor knowing if there are possible heirs or owner of if, my person thought to go out for search for clearing the matter if a taking (using) on trust (if coming accross again) would be proper and so found your news group here.

If having any contact which could lead to resolving the issue, it would be of use, yet of course, it should not disturb or urge to anything. No demands at all behind.

As for you surely great news group here, may all fruits of your good deeds always ripe in a way that firm faith into cause and effect may be established quick, and of course, independend of all you here, you can be always sure to be welcome to make use of what is shared and accessible via sangham.net and zugangzureinsicht.org .

Dear Samana Johann

I'm sure it'll all be fine. The author is still alive.

Would you mind forwarding your message to DSG so we can discuss there with Nina as well.

Thank you

Sarah

Quote from: Johann
Not at all, Nyom Sarah, would my person mind such, here even being a case of intent of certain release.

As for "sure", knowing how seldom wise and not defiled mind arises, it's nevertheless good to act not to much on trust and tiny justifications.

It all should how ever not disturb all of you in not welcome ways.

What ever Nyom thinks that it is good to do.

Dear Sumana Johann

Welcome to DSG and glad to see you posting.

Papañca - proliferations, thinking with lobha, māna (conceit) or diṭṭhi (wrong view). Most of the day, aren't we lost in the story about sense objects, lost with lobha, conceit or ideas about Me and others and things, taking them for being real? As discussed in the Mūlapariyāya sutta, not understanding hardness as hardness, always the idea of some thing, some one and so on.

Please post your message about translating Achan Sujin's Perfections here for us discuss further. Nina will be interested to see it.

Are you from Cambodia? Whereabouts in Cambodia is your temple?
