New Book> Meditations of the Pali Tradition by L.S. Cousins

I am pleased to share a new release that I hope will be of keen interest to those on this list. 

1. Meditations of the Pali Tradition: Illuminating Buddhist Doctrine, History, and Practice
by L.S. Cousins, edited by Sarah Shaw

As most of you know, Lance Cousins was an extraordinary scholar, and while we are lucky to have his innumerable papers and a wonderful volume dedicated to him (edited by Naomi Appleton and Peter Harvey), this is the only book-length work by him, and I cannot recommend it more strongly.

NOTICE OF PASSING> K.R. Norman (1995–2020)

Dear Colleagues,

I write with the sad news of the death of K.R. Norman, who has died at the age of 95.

Roy or Mr Norman, as he liked to be known, was one of the great scholars of Middle Indo-Aryan philology. His academic career was spent almost entirely in Cambridge. He completed an MA at Cambridge in 1954 and went on to become Lecturer in Indian Studies (1954–1978), then Reader in Indian Studies (1978–1990), before being appointed Professor of Indian Studies in 1990, shortly before his retirement in 1992.

NOTICE OF PASSING> Dr. Peter Dennis Masefield, 1943–2020

Dear colleagues,

I am saddened to announce the passing away of Dr Peter Masefield, age 77, on September 7, 2020, in Bangkok.

Peter Denis Masefield was a well-known figure in the field of Pali Buddhism with many important publications and translations. His latest ongoing translation project for the Pali Text Society, nearing completion, included the Cariyāpiṭaka, and its commentary.

His passing is a great loss to the field. He will be greatly missed by his colleagues, friends, and students.
