Udana and the Itivuttaka: Two Classics from the Pali Canon
Two small classics of the Pali Canon in one volume. The Udana is a compilation of eighty short but deeply impressive suttas, each expressing the Buddha's joyful insight into the profound significance of apparently simple events. The Itivuttaka is a collection of 112 inspiring texts in mixed prose and verse. Both will prove to be constant friends and wellsprings of inspiration. With introductions and notes.

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.
