5.0 out of 5 stars A truly great book., 12 April 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: The Middle Length Sayings: New Translation: Majjhima-Nikaya (Teachings of the Buddha) (Hardcover)
This is one of the few truly great Buddhist books ever published in English. It would be hard to improve upon, and there will be no need for anyone to try their hand at this again in the future unless the English language changes substantially. The subject matter is sublime, a large collection of the original sutra teachings of Buddha, and the translators are the best in their field, scholar-practitioners with a long history of producing the clearest writings in this difficult field. And simply as a book it is of the highest quality, with exceptional binding, quality paper and excellent typesetting. You can't go wrong here.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you're going to buy just one of the Nikaya's - buy this!, 26 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Middle Length Sayings: New Translation: Majjhima-Nikaya (Teachings of the Buddha) (Hardcover)
Probably the Nikaya with the greatest breadth of teachings without becoming too deep and esoteric. Ideal if you were trying to choose which Nikaya to buy. For anyone serious about learning the most authentic Buddhist teachings this is really one book you will appreciate. 152 suttas covering many aspects of the teachings, it has proved a great aid to my Buddhist reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Modern Translation, 15 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Middle Length Sayings: New Translation: Majjhima-Nikaya (Teachings of the Buddha) (Hardcover)
An excellent modern translation of the a key part of the Pali Buddhist canon. We owe a great debt to the American scholar monk Bhikkhu Bodhi for completing the work of his English predecessor.
