So... What Buddha WOULD play?
Some videogames maybe? Or not even that?

Is this legit? What's the source of this? Rycanada 00:53, 8 October 2007 (UTC)
Reasoning For List?
Assuming this information is accurate there is no information in this article regarding why the list was created. Was it a protest? Did he not like games? Did he find these particular games offensive? Can someone please expand this article to include this information? Uniquenamessuck (talk) 16:10, 21 August 2008 (UTC)
The article is in slightly rough shape right now, but I think there's reason to believe that it can be improved. We've got one reference for the existence of the list (the in-text mention of Rhys David's translation, which mentions a specific sutra- finding a more up-to-date translation isn't a problem). I believe Maurice Walsh, who translated the Digha Nikaya, probably has some updated footnotes on this list of games. Second, we've got a mention in the text of a third-party mention- in the history book mentioned at the end of the article. The book is on Amazon, and is an Oxford University imprint, so it seems like a good, academic source; if someone can get a hold of that book, they can add what Murray says about it. The context clearly needs to be added, but it seems that reliable references exist. Another option if there isn't sufficient information to sustain an entire article would be to merge with the Brahmajala Sutta (Theravada) article. Since there are so few sources of information about everyday life in ancient India, I would think that this bears preserving in some form. --Clay Collier (talk) 11:23, 8 February 2009 (UTC)
- Fair enough. I'll go along with you on that and am happy to have the prod withdrawn. --Orrelly Man (talk) 11:27, 8 February 2009 (UTC)
