Text in English, Pali. 126 p. This Guide to the Tipitaka offers both authoritative descriptions of Theravada Buddhist doctrine and summaries of all texts of the Burmese version of the Tipitaka, the three collections of Buddhist teachings venerated as canonical. This Burmese version is unique in that it includes three texts not found in the Thai or Sri Lankan editions of the canon. These are the Nettipakarana, the Petakopadesa, and the celebrated Milindapanha. Thus, we have in this Guide a text which will aid in the understanding of the Pali canon in its most extensive form, thereby embracing, by implication, all the traditions of Theravada Buddhism. This is an improved reprint from a Burmese version. 0.0. Bookseller Inventory # ABE.0007471
