Re: QUERY> English translations of commentaries written on the Abhidhammatha Sangaha

Dear Sameeksha,

There may be a bootleg PDF floating around somewhere, but it is not easily available. Better to support the work of scholars and purchase the book.

Pali Text Society books can usually be purchased online directly from the Society.

Re: QUERY> English translations of commentaries written on the Abhidhammatha Sangaha

Dear Dan Lusthaus and Dhivan Jones,

thank you very much for the information.
Is this (Summary of the Topics of Abhidhamma, Pali Text Society 2002) book available in pdf format on the internet? or could someone please tell me how I can access this book?

Thank you,
with kind regards,

Dear Sameeksha,
The translation of Abhidhammaṭṭhasaṅgaha by R.P. Wijeratne and Rupert Gethin (Summary of the Topics of Abhidhamma, Pali Text Society 2002) includes a translation of the commentary called Abhidhammaṭṭhavibhāvinī by Sumaṅgala. The translation of Abhidhammaṭṭhasaṅgaha ed. Bhikkhu Bodhi (A Comprehensive Manual of Abhidhamma, BPS 1993) includes explanatory material drawn from the same commentary and also that of Ledi Sayadaw called Paramatthadīpanī-ṭīkā.
