This scholarly yet highly readable volume offers a concise introduction to the tenets of Buddhism. A brief biography and an overview of doctrine is followed by a series of Pali texts, attributed to Buddha himself. Rich in parables and observations, the texts are thematically organized around the founder, his prophesies, training, and the transcendent state.
