Description
An invaluable collection of the teachings of the Buddha which reveal his gentleness, compassion, and penetrating wisdom. These thirty-four discourses are among the oldest records of the Buddha's original teachings. (Previously titled Thus Have I Heard.)

"This is…a(n) amazing work that speaks to us across 2500 years...Each person who undertakes to read and study The Long Discourses of the Buddha will, I believe, open up new paths of thought and new and precious insights into the depths of Buddhist history and thought."
—Mountain Record, Summer 1996

"These teachings...unfold in fascinating procession of scenarios that show the Buddha in living dialogue with people from the many different strata of ancient Indian society...Replete with drama, with reasoned argument, and with illuminating parables and similes, these discourses exhibit the Buddha in the full range of his wisdom, majestic sublimity, and compassionate humanity."
—Branches of Light, Fall in to Winter 1996/97
