Drawn from the Anguttara Nikaya, Numerical Discourses of the Buddha brings together teachings of the Buddha ranging from basic ethical observances recommended to the busy man or woman of the world, to the more rigorous instructions on mental training prescribed for the monks and nuns. The Anguttara Nikaya is a part of the Pali Canon, the authorized recension of the Buddha's Word for followers of Theravada Buddhism, the form of Buddhism prevailing in the Buddhist countries of southern Asia.

Essential reading for any serious Buddhist regardless of school or tradition. Stop reading the latest crackpot pseudo-Buddhist book by the latest self-proclaimed-guru-of-the-month and read the actual suttas (sutras) from the Buddha himself.
