“This is an amazing work that speaks to us across 2500 years... Each person who undertakes to read and study The Long Discourses of the Buddha will, I believe, open up new paths of thought and new and precious insights into the depths of Buddhist history and thought.”—Mountain Record

“These teachings... unfold in fascinating procession of scenarios that show the Buddha in living dialogue with people from the many different strata of ancient Indian society... Replete with drama, with reasoned argument, and with illuminating parables and similes, these discourses exhibit the Buddha in the full range of his wisdom, majestic sublimity, and compassionate humanity.”—Branches of Light
