2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 663 libraries worldwide
The words in the hope of nibbana are often found printed on invitations to anniversaries or festival meals, sent by the Burmese to their friends. Early in the morning, monks are fed, followed by other invited friends who arrive for a good social meal together. All of this is done, as the invitation reassures, in the hope of nibbana. Thus does the ordinary Buddhist, himself far from nibbana, honor those who are striving, humbly hoping that his modest charitable efforts will somehow by the process of kammic multiplication add up to a nibbanic sum in the end. Such words characterize the Buddhist ethical endeavor.In the Hope of Nibbāna offers a glimpse into the process of a religion and a culture struggling to align ethical values with the realities of the modern world. Buddhism is deeply woven into the fabric of life in Burma, now called Myanmar, and the country's insular history has made it an ideal place to experience Buddhism's influence on a culture and people

Laser measurement of pavement surface textures by S Gee( Book )
3 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 12 libraries worldwide
A laboratory investigation was conducted into the feasibility of employing laser light depolarization as a measure of pavement surface textures. Pavement cores representing different conditions of wear were employed in the investigation, as were newly formed concrete slabs especially prepared for the tests. Results show that the laser technique is sensitive to the pavement textural characteristics. Comparison with independent frictional data and conventional textural data on the same samples indicates generally good correlation with the laser data. The conclusion is that the laser concept is feasible and offers a potentially attractive method for obtaining real-time measurements of pavement surface textures from a moving vehicle.
