What People are saying about this

Joseph Goldstein
I am eagerly awaiting Bhikkhu Bodhi's new translation of the Samyutta Nikaya, The Connected Discourses of the Buddha. His brilliant, scholarly, and eminently readable version ofThe Middle Length Discourses set a benchmark for translations of the Buddha's words into English. This new work will make accessible even more of the original teachings, offering guidance, instruction and inspiration on the path of awakening. It is a priceless gift. (Joseph Goldstein, author of Insight Meditation: The Practice of Freedom)
Christopher Titmuss
We have been waiting for this new translation of The Connected Discourses of the Buddha for 30 years. It has been well worth the wait. With painstaking care, the eminent Buddhist scholar monk, Bhikkhu Bodhi, has translated the 2889 discourses of the Buddha. No one is better qualified. Collected into their different themes, The Connected Discourses point the way to enlightenment. This book serves as one of the finest resources available for insight into the human condition. The Buddha addresses issues such as body/mind, daily life realities, suffering and joy, awareness and meditation. This book is rich in spiritual teachings, suitable for daily reflection, study, a manual for psychologists, a teaching guide at universities, and offering a wealth of benefits to anyone interested in the true heart of the Buddha's teachings. I regard it as an indispensable guide to an awakened life. With 2080 pages, it is an extraordinary publishing initiative. This book is worth every penny. Buy it. It is money well spent. (Christopher Titmuss, author of Light on Enlightenment and An Awakened Life)
Jack Kornfield
It is extremely good news to have Bhikkhu Bodhi -- a brilliant translator -- bring out a new edition of the Samyutta Nikaya, one of the richest and most important of all Buddhist texts. (Jack Kornfield, author of A Path with Heart)
