This anthology of discourses from the Pali Canon -- the only student edition of such works available -- provides an account of Buddhist teachings directly from the earliest primary sources. Seventeen discourses are provided, including those most essential to the study and teaching of early Buddhism. Substantial introductions to each discourse highlight the main themes and set the ideas presented in the context of wider philosophical and religious issues. The general Introduction discusses the structure and language of the Pali Canon -- its importance within the Buddhist tradition, and the historical context in which it developed -- and gives an overview of the basic doctrines of early Buddhism. Additional support materials include helpful footnotes, a select bibliography, and a glossary of key terms.
