Praise for The Teachings of the Buddha Series

“A triumph.”—The Middle Way

“As close as we’ll get to the original teachings and account of the life of the Buddha.”—Tricycle

“A book to be kept close at hand for a lifetime—it will long endure as a classic of scholarship and render the teachings of the historical Buddha accessible to any who have eyes to see and the interest to look.”—Inquiring Mind

“An amazing work that speaks to us across 2500 years [to] open up new and precious insights into the depths of Buddhist history and thought.”—Mountain Record

“A priceless gift.”—Joseph Goldstein, author of A Heart Full of Peace and One Dharma

“Bhikkhu Bodhi is a brilliant translator.”—Jack Kornfield, author of After the Ecstasy, the Laundry

“Venerable Bhikkhu Bodhi...has produced an authoritative and lucid rendition that will quickly become the standard English version and is likely to remain so for many generations. Into one massive volume he has packed not simply a splendidly readable translation of the suttas of the Aṅguttara Nikāya, but a fine introduction, over 270 pages of erudite notes, and a number of useful appendices, making his work an indispensable resource for the study of the Buddha’s word for scholars and practitioners alike. This is a major contribution to Buddhist scholarship.”—Paul Harrison, professor of Religious Studies at Stanford University and a member of the Khyentse Foundation Prize Selection Committee
