Synopsis

Shambhala sale edition. Immediately after his enlightenment, the Buddha gave a discourse that contained within it the foundation for all further Buddhist teachings. The text of this remarkable discourse or sutta (sutra), is presented here and illuminated by a respected, contemporary teacher in the Theravadin tradition, Ajahn Sucitto. This discourse by the Buddha, Dhammacakkappavattana Sutta, the Sutta That Sets in Motion the Wheel of Truth, is revered by all schools of Buddhism, yet it isn't studied regularly due to the density of the material it contains. Sucitto's engaging, chapter-by-chapter unpacking of the text makes it accessible to everyone, showing how it serves as a complete digest of all the Buddhist teachings, and thus, as a worthy guide for life. His commentary includes enlightening discussions of fundamental Buddhist ideas and principles such as: the Middle Way, the Eightfold Path, the Four Noble Truths, Buddhist cosmology, karma, and enlightenment.

"Ajahn Sucitto takes one of the most essential of all Buddhist teachings and illuminates it with depth, perspective, and clarity. His teachings offer an immediate and straightforward vision of Dharma, like a lamp in the darkness." Jack Kornfield.

"An invaluable contribution to our understanding of the Buddha's teaching on the Four Noble Truths. In a clear and thorough way, Ajahn Succito helps us study these teachings in the service of the liberating practice of understanding ourselves." Larry Rosenberg.
