In the Buddha's Words - An Anthology of Discourses from the Pali Canon edited and introduced by Bhikkhu Bodhi


 
This landmark collection is the definitive introduction to the Buddha's teaching -- in his own words. The American scholar-monk Bhikkhu Bodhi, whose voluminous translations have won widespread acclaim, here presents selected discourses of the Buddha from the Pali Canon, the earliest record of what the Buddha taught. Divided into ten thematic chapters, In the Buddha's Words reveals the full scope of the Buddha's discourses, from family life and marriage to renunciation and the path of insight.

In the Buddha's Words allows even readers unacquainted with Buddhism to grasp the significance of the Buddha's contributions to our world heritage. Taken as a whole, these texts bear eloquent testimony to the breadth and intelligence of the Buddha's teachings, and point the way to an ancient yet ever-vital path.

"Bhikku Bodhi's introductions to each chapter strung together would themselves serve as a beautiful and accessible overview of the Dhamma." -- Buddhadharma: The Practitioner's Quarterly
