ANGUTTARA NIKAYA BHIKKHU BODHI PDF

Feb 8, Books. These works have performed a great service to Buddhists around the world, but they are now in need of replacement. Wisdom has continued its excellent work with further translations of the Majjhima Nikaya, or The Middle Length Discourses of the Buddha , published in , and the Samyutta Nikaya, or The Connected Discourses of the Buddha , published last year. The key figure in both these recent translations is the American monk, Bhikkhu Bodhi. For this alone, Bodhi deserves at least 20 aeons in some Brahma heaven!

Feb 8, Books. These works have performed a great service to Buddhists around the world, but they are now in need of replacement. Wisdom has continued its excellent work with further translations of the Majjhima Nikaya, or The Middle Length Discourses of the Buddha , published in , and the Samyutta Nikaya, or The Connected Discourses of the Buddha , published last year.

The key figure in both these recent translations is the American monk, Bhikkhu Bodhi. For this alone, Bodhi deserves at least 20 aeons in some Brahma heaven! When I heard there was indeed a new translation of the Anguttara by Bodhi, entitled Numerical Discourses of the Buddha , my response was disbelief.

As The Connected Discourses of the Buddha has only just been published, how could anyone complete a translation of the whole Anguttara Nikaya in such a short time? These were published by the Buddhist Publication Society in three short volumes from The original BPS editions contained translations of suttas. Bodhi has deleted five of these and added 60 new translations of his own, making a total of suttas. A numbering system is provided that facilitates cross-referencing with the PTS translations, but not directly to their Pali edition.

As well as a page two-part introduction, Pali-English Glossary, Index and Bibliography, we are also provided with 41 pages of very useful notes. If one knows a numbered list, this is the place to look. Sometimes, however, the notes drawn from the commentaries are far from illuminating. Could this be the reason Bodhi edited these comments out?

Numerical Discourses of the Buddha

The Anguttara Nikaya, the fourth division of the Sutta Pitaka , consists of several thousand [1] suttas arranged in eleven books nipatas according to numerical content. For example, the first nipata — the Book of the Ones — contains suttas concerning a single topic; the second nipata — the Book of the Twos — contains suttas concerning pairs of things e. At first glance this may seem a rather pedantic classification scheme, but in fact it often proves quite useful. For example, if you dimly recall having heard something about the five subjects worthy of daily contemplation and you'd like to track down the original passage in the Canon, a good place to begin your search is the Book of the Fives in the Anguttara. The Index by Number may also be helpful in such cases. It is also available to read online and in various ebook formats at dhammatalks. The translator appears in the square brackets [].
