. . . dedicated to providing accurate, reliable, and useful information concerning the practice and study of Theravada Buddhism, as it has been handed down to us through both the written word of the Pali canon and the living example of the Sangha.
Coherently organized (see its Site Map), Access to Insight has provided a generation of Buddhist-meditation practitioners an easy entrance to a dense forest of writings. Its riches are not easily exhausted by anyone serious about making progress on their own path beyond the tangles of our ego-dominated lives.
Everything on this website is made available to you thanks to the generosity of dozens of authors, translators, publishers, and transcribers, all of whom contributed their efforts with the explicit understanding that the fruits of their labors would be given away free of charge, as an expression of dāna.[*] You may download these files to your computer, print them out, read them, share them with your friends, copy them to your own website, translate them into other languages, and redistribute them electronically — provided that you do not charge any money for them.
Remembering that “the journey of thousand miles starts under one’s feet,” this webpage is likely as good a place to begin as any.
Safe journey, Gentles . . .
