Synopsis:
An abridged translation of the five volume Buddhist sutra from the Pali canon. The original translation was by Nyanaponika Thera, and these 208 selected discourses have been revised and given an introduction by Bhikkhu Bodhi.

The Anguttara Nikaya is one of the main collection of suttas from the Pali Canon, the authorized recension of the Buddha`s word for followers of Theravada Buddhism. These particular discourses are called numerical because they retain the structure of the original Anguttara Nikaya. Sayings are organized not by topic, but by numbers mentioned in the texts. This organizational scheme, common in ancient Indian literature, can give the reader a haphazard view of the Buddha`s teachings. To balance this tendency Bhikkhu Bodhi provides a systematic introduction to the Buddha`s teaching in the Anguttara Nikaya. The translators also provide notes, a glossary, and another introduction placing the Anguttara in the context of the larger Theravada Buddhist Canon. This readable but precise translation will be welcomed by both students of Theravada Buddhism as well as anyone wishing to learn from the Buddha`s teachings.
