Buddhist Suttas
Major Scriptural Writings from Early Buddhism

by T.W. Rhys Davids

These seven scriptural writings are considered to be the most important and oldest of the Buddhist religion. Originally written in the Pali language, they date to the fourth and third centuries BC. This early date is what makes them so important-they form the very core of Buddhist teachings, sought after and studied by monks and scholars for centuries. There could never be a complete understanding of the true meaning of Buddhism without them (previously available elsewhere for $250.00).

Over the centuries teh Buddhist religion, as withChristianity, has splintered off into many factions, but all branches have retained these core teachings. The influence of the texts contained in this book upon the entire Buddhist world is enormous. They have been sought after and studied by monks and scholars for centuries, and there could never be a complete understanding of the true meaning of Buddhism without them.

Excerpt:

And he lets his mind pervade one quarter of the world with thoughts of pity, sympathy, and equanimity, and so the second, and so the third, and so the fourth. And thus the whole wide world, above, below, around, and everywhere, does he continue to pervade with heart of pity, sympathy, and equanimity, far-reaching, grown great, and beyond measure.
