Thus Have I Heard

Published on 2012/03/05, by in News.

The first hand accounts of those who heard the Buddha’s teachings were preserved in chants and recitations which were passed on to the present day.  In the Pali language, the narratives begin with the statement “evam me sutam” which means “thus have I heard.”  The Evam.Me website aims to bring alive the ancient words and allow us to hear the Buddha’s teachings as though we had been there firsthand.  Evam.Me serves as a hub connecting Pali language resources, translations of suttas, and contemporary discussion.  We employ content management systems (CMS), blogs, videos, forums, email, and whatever other technology that might bear fruit.  May this work be of great benefit to all beings without exception!
