Review

"It can be difficult for Westerners to penetrate the 'official' Buddhist canon, but one English-language translation stands above the rest: "The Middle Length Discourses of the Buddha," published by Wisdom Publications."--Mark Schneider, religion reporter, Canadian Television News

From the Back Cover

This book offers a complete translation of the Majjhima Nikaya, the Middle Length Discourses of the Buddha, one of the major collections of texts in the Pali Canon, the authorized scriptures of Theravada Buddhism.

By A Customer on 12 April 1999
Format: 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.

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.

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.

If you are interested in philosophy, meditation or have a keen mind, open it to a random sutta and try & discern the meaning. It won't let you down.
