Handful of Leaves VOL I – IV

Posted on | October 15, 2014 | No Comments

Handful of leaves Handful of Leaves an anthology from the Digha Nikaya of the Pali Canon is translated by Thanissaro Bhikkhu (Geoffrey DeGraff). The suttas selected and translated here for these volumes were chosen for the interest they might hold for a person intent on understanding and practicing the Buddhist teachings, or Dhamma. Some have been chosen for their detailed discussions of basic doctrines; others, for the vivid stories or similes they use to illustrate those doctrines. Although they constitute only a small portion of the Sutta Pitaka, taken together they present a fairly comprehensive picture of the Pitaka’s essential teachings. Unfortunately only volume I and III are available at the moment, please let me know if you have information about volume II and IV.
