Product description


"It is extremely good news to have Bhikkhu Bodhi--a brilliant translator--bring out a new edition of the Sayutta Nikya, one of the richest and most important of all Buddhist texts."--Jack Kornfield, author of A Path with Heart

"This new translation of The Connected Discourses of the Buddha 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

"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 of The 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


Now available in a single volume this is a complete translation of the Samyutta Nikaya, containing all of the important suttas on such major topics as the four noble truths, dependent origination, the seven factors of enlightenment and the noble eightfold path. The Connected Discourses of the Buddha ranks as one of the most inspiring compilations in the Buddhist canon. Bhikkhu Bodhi's distinguished and precise translation, his insightful introductory materials, and his extensive notes guide the reader through this vast collection of the Buddha's ancient teachings.
