Product Description

By Walpola Rahula.
A classic introductory book to Buddhism, What the Buddha Taught contains a selection of illustrative texts from the original Pali texts, including the Suttas and the Dhammapada. The author, himself a Buddhist monk and scholar, removes a number of common misconceptions about Buddhism, and provides a comprehensive, compact, lucid, and faithful account of the Buddha¿s teachings that persistently enjoys great popularity in colleges, universities, and theological schools both here and abroad. "For years," says the Journal of the Buddhist Society, "the newcomer to Buddhism has lacked a simple and reliable introduction to the complexities of the subject. Dr. Rahula's What the Buddha Taught fills the need as only could be done by one having a firm grasp of the vast material to be sifted. It is a model of what a book should be that is addressed first of all to `the educated and intelligent reader.' Authoritative and clear, logical and sober, this study is as comprehensive as it is masterly."

This book is recommended reading by Institute of Buddhist Studies adjunct professor Bhante Madawala Seelamiwala.
