This complete, compact, lucid, and trustworthy account of the Buddha’s teachings constantly enjoys nice reputation in faculties, universities, and theological faculties each right here and out of the country. “An exposition of Buddhism conceived in a resolutely up to date spirit.”—from the Foreword.

“For years,” says the Journal of the Buddhist Society, “the newcomer to Buddhism has lacked a easy and dependable introduction to the complexities of the topic. Dr. Rahula’s What the Buddha Taught fills the will as best might be done through one having an organization take hold of of the huge subject material to be sifted. This can be a type of what a guide will have to be that may be addressed initially to ‘the trained and intelligent reader.’ Authoritative and transparent, logical and sober, this examine is as complete as it’s masterly.”

A classic introductory guide to Buddhism, What the Buddha Taught, accommodates a number of illustrative texts from the unique Pali texts, together with the Suttas and the Dhammapada (especially translated through the writer), 16 illustrations, and a bibliography, word list, and index.

Underneath the giant umbrella of Buddhism, there’s a various galaxy of customs and ideology, however there may be a kernel of fact that each and every sect holds pricey. Rahula Walpola, pupil and monk, discovers this basis of Buddhism for us first via {straightforward|easy} explication, by no means skipping over some extent that has yet to be substantiated, then via translations from key scriptures. Logical and centered, these are the essentials of Buddhism; recognise them first, then move comfortably directly to different Buddhist works.
