Yinshun’s Samyukta Agama & New Translations Uploaded

This week I implemented Yinshun’s divisions of the Samyukta Agama, which divided the sutra collection into 51 groups (samyuktas) that are similar to the thematic groups in the Pali Samyutta Nikaya.

English translations of the first four sutras from the Aggregates Group have also been added, which define the five aggregates of form, feeling, perception, intention, and consciousness as impermanent, painful, empty, and not self.

Over the next couple weeks I’ll be adding several more sutras from the Aggregates group and the Noble Path group of the Samyuka Agama. Once all the sutras that are currently drafted are edited and published, I’ll be switching to translating the Ekottarika Agama‘s Introduction.
