Teachings of the Buddha: The Wisdom of the Dharma, from the Pali Canon to the Sutras

Teachings of the Buddha: The Wisdom of the Dharma, from the Pali Canon to the Sutras Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Stories and insights from the Buddha combine with magnificent imagery in this essential, inspirational collection. 
While concentrating on the Pali canon in particular (which contains the Dhammapada), Teachings of the Buddha reflects the rich diversity of Buddhist traditions. There are extracts from the later Mahayana sutras, time-honored Buddhist tales, and fascinating koans (riddles) from Zen masters. Introductory passages of commentary illuminate key meanings, and the books ten chapters mirror stages of the Buddhas healing role, from diagnosis to cure—or enlightenment.
