Guy E. Dubois (1947) has translated various parts of the early Buddhist texts into Dutch, provided them with commentary and makes them available for free on SuttaCentral. He is also the author of several works on the teachings of the Buddha. These can be read online, for those who prefer to hold a real book in their hands, they can be ordered at bol.com. The author himself wants to remain true to his initial objective: he does not wish to earn anything from Dhamma. Guy: "Whenever any 'profit' is generated it will go to dana." As a yogi, he is completely unbound with respect to any Buddhist tradition. Thus, he interprets the Dhamma in a free-spirited manner. As such, he is - in the literal sense of the word - a "homeless person," a bhikkhu, a mendicant, who gives his dhutanga (practice) substance in a very personal way. In his books he combines a virulently liberal attitude to life with a great affection for the deep insights of the Buddha.

Dhamma is SpontaneousGuy E. Dubois
Spontaneous is the antonym of ingrained. The opposite of conditioned. Of manipulated. Spontaneous leaves nothing standing of what the dhammanuvatti  perceives in his delusion as ‘fixed’. Spontaneous is space: shapeless, nameless, timeless, without dimension, unsullied. Without a past, without a future, without desire, without revulsion, without attachment. The fullness of the present. Of the […]
On Perception and RealityGuy E. Dubois
The life of the Buddha has been described extensively and with a great deal of devotion in the suttas. Siddhartha’s odyssey comes down to this: he was born in the 5th century B.C. in Lumbini, an unsightly village in the Terai plain of Nepal, at the foot of the Himalayas. He spent the first 29 […]
