BUDDHA'S TEACHINGS, BEING THE SUTTA-NIPATA OR DISCOURSE-COLLECTION, EDITED IN THE ORIGINAL PALI TEXT WITH AN ENGLISH VERSION FACING IT., Chalmers, Lord.
1 Chalmers, Lord. BUDDHA'S TEACHINGS, BEING THE SUTTA-NIPATA OR DISCOURSE-COLLECTION, EDITED IN THE ORIGINAL PALI TEXT WITH AN ENGLISH VERSION FACING IT.
Motilal Banarsidass, Delhi, 2000. 
300 pp, large 8vo (9 3/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 8120813553 "(C)ontains a metrical English rendering of an important Buddhist work in Pali named the 'Sutta-Nipata' with the original text in Romanized version on the opposite page. The Pali Canon, as it has come down to us, is divided into three Pitakas or 'baskets', viz. Vinaya-Pitaka, Sutta-Pitaka and Abhidhamma-Pitaka. The Sutta-Nipata, translated here, contains an ancient, probably the most ancient, part of the Sutta- P i t a k a . It belongs to that portion of the Sutta-Pitaka which is named Khuddaka Nikaya or 'Collection of Short Treatises' as distinct from the four long Nikayas called Digha, Majjhima, Samyutta and Anguttara. Of the five Vaggas (or 'books') of t he p re se nt Sutta-Nipata the fifth stands out from its fellows by reason of its purposeful unity. While th Uraga, Maha, Cula and Atthaka Vaggas consist each of a collection of independent and unconnected poems (sometimes interspersed with pr ose ) c all ed 'Su tta s', the Parayana aims at a dramatic synthesis. Its prologue and epilogue serve as a setting for the sixteen Questions which elicit Gotama's gradual exposition of the saving 'Way Across'." Faint discoloration on cloth boar ds. Dus t ja cket ha s li ght edge wear/wrinkling, one small tear with creases taped, light rubbing, soft crease on spine, very small label from bookstore on front flap. Very Good/Very Good-
