  • [28 August 2003] New collection of talks by Ajaan Lee:
    • Starting Out Small: A Collection of Talks for Beginning Meditators (Portfolio 2), by Ajaan Lee Dhammadharo, translated from the Thai by Thanissaro Bhikkhu (2003; 80k/27pp.) These seven short introductory talks, like those in the earlier anthology Starting Out Small, are perhaps best put to use when read aloud at the beginning of a meditation period (each takes no more than a few minutes to read). Ajaan Lee's distinctive wise wit shines through every one of them.
  • [31 July 2003] From the Majjhima Nikaya:
    • Maha-hatthipadopama Sutta (MN 28) — The Great Elephant Footprint Simile {M i 184} [Thanissaro Bhikkhu, trans.]. An explanation of the four noble truths, focusing on the aggregate of physical form and showing (1) how all the aggregates are interrelated and (2) how all four noble truths, together with the principle of dependent co-arising, are related to the aggregates.
