New (slightly old) news from WisdomPubs about Wisdom of the Buddha Series

Some time over the last year (or two) Wisdom made some dramatic changes in there distribution of the wisdom of the Buddha series.

First, they have made many suttas available online at each book’s webpage. (50 from just the MN!) Not only that, these suttas have a Creative Commons license that allows non commercial distribution. This is a great benefit for people doing Dhamma teaching programs.

Even more exciting, the ebooks are now available directly from Wisdom without DRM in three formats– PDF, EPUB, & Moby–as a package, all for a single price. This means you can use the Mobi file on any Kindle you own, and if you later switch to a non-Amazon product you can use the EPUB. Presumably it would also eliminate the my-clippings limit imposed by Amazon. The only down side is that you wouldn’t have the supposedly lifetime download option that you do with Amazon. So just be sure to hold on to all three files in a safe place.

Here are the pages for each book

Dīgha Nikaya, The Long Discourses of the Buddha (No sutta exerpts)

Majjhima Nikāya, The Middle Length Discourses of the Buddha

Saṃyutta Nikāya, The Connected Discourses of the Buddha
