Title: Aryadeva's "400".
Post by: ananda on February 15, 2011, 12:47:49 pm
Hello,

I have just joined Free Sangha very pleased to be here.

I'm requesting assistence please, in establishing if there is an alternative translation available of 'Aryadeva's Four Hundred Stanzas on the Middle Way', translated by Ruth Sonam a Snow Lion Publ.

I am aware that a couple of decades back Karen Lang's translation, 'Aryadeva's Catuhsataka' was published but is no longer available, (can't find a copy anywhere?).

The Ruth Sonam/Geshe Sonam Rinchen translation is great, and for the most I'm able to follow the thread.
But I do run into trouble in some sections so I would dearly like to get another translation as a comparison.

Thank you in advance,

metta

Try this German site:

http://www.amazon.de/exec/obidos/ASIN/B003VV7MF6/ref=nosim/addall

Or, if you are a member of a library, you can request it on interlibrary loan for a few weeks.

Thank You Both!
Let me look at that web site, and about the '300' how did it go! "Stranger passing through do honor unto these warriors, or something....................i think?"

Hi,

I love this text very much.  You can find an alternative translation on Alexander Berzin's site:

http://www.berzinarchives.com/web/x/nav/n.html_1949421541.html (http://www.berzinarchives.com/web/x/nav/n.html_1949421541.html)

There are also mp3 recordings of a short commentary to the main points.  Enjoy!
