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.
Glenn Wallis is associate professor and chair of the Applied Meditation Studies program at the Won Institute of Graduate Studies and the author of Basic Teachings of the Buddha, The Dhammapada, and Meditating the Power of Buddhas. He lives in Glenside, Pennsylvania.

“Those who have this intuitive gift will find that by the time they complete this book, they will be able to read virtually any sutta in the Pali Nikayas.”  —Bhikkhu Bodhi, author, The Numerical Discourses of the Buddha
