    • Hi Dr. Saswati,
      My book on the Additional verses in the Chinese Dhammapada is not available in the website. It was published in May last year in Bangladesh. The book is a very thin one and actually, to be honest, poorly printed….
      Anyhow, it is available in the hard copy in Bangladesh……So, if you really want to get a copy you have to bring it from Bangladesh through someone you know…..

      Thanks for your comment,

      Venerable Sajal

  3. I want to buy the book name, CHAINIK DHARMAPAD: SNYOJITA GATHASMUHA (ADDITIONAL VERSES IN THE CHINESE DHAMMAPADA) Author (Translated into Bengali by): Bhikkhu Gyanabodhi. Can you please tell that how can i get the above book in India as i didn’t know anybody who can bring that book from Bangladesh for me. So it will be very helpful if you kindly send this book through postal service, i can send Demand-Draft for the price of the book with postal charges. Anxiously waiting for your answer (amount of draft, payable at where, and to where i have to send the draft). Thankink you, yours faithfully, Amitava Maity. E-mail: maity.amitava@yahoo.in
