Encouraging the study of Buddhist canonical literature in Pali, this reader aims to provide a reliable overview of Siddhattha Gotama’s teachings, allowing students to distinguish them from historical changes, additions, and mutations. Sixteen suttas have been selected here for study, each compromising a section of the book. After each sutta are blank pages where students can write down their own renderings; a word-by-word guide to the sutta, with brief grammatical annotations; and, at the end of the book, polished translations of all the suttas offered. A familiarity with basic Pali grammar is recommended.
