By lokabandhu on Mon, 28 Oct, 2013 - 20:57
Here’s an unusual peice of translation work: three well-known Triratna ceremonies ‘back-translated’ from English into Pali - translations usually being FROM the Pali! We’re delighted to present the Dedication Ceremony, the Refuges and Precepts, and the Threefold Pūja. Many thanks to Dhivan and others for preparing them; we’re hoping for the Sanskrit versions soon!

They are part of the Triratna Translations project, hosted on The Buddhist Centre Online...

Latin translation of Triratna Texts

By lokabandhu on Mon, 16 Sep, 2013 - 17:09

Perhaps our most unusual translation yet - the Latin version of three key Triratna Texts! We’re delighted to present the Three-fold Puja, the Dedication Ceremony, and the Refuges and Precepts - all translated, perhaps somewhat inaccurately, by Google. Suggestions for improvements are welcome, please email us at translations [at] triratnadevelopment.org!  Seriously though, we are in touch with volunteers from the ‘Make Mars Speak Latin’ project, and may have some results to publish soon.
