Bhikkhu Bodhi Lectures: In the Buddha's Words

Postby mikenz66 » Tue Oct 13, 2009 6:50 pm

Bhikkhu Bodhi's lectures based on his book "In the Buddha's Words" http://wisdompubs.org/Pages/display.lasso?-KeyValue=104" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
are available here: http://www.noblepath.org/audio.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
[Scroll down, there are also some MN talks there...]

The audio makes this outstanding introduction to the Pali Canon even more useful and instructive... :thumbsup:

And see also the links to freely-available versions here:

Thanks Mike!

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

I'm very interested in reading this book. Does anyone have it? I'd like to know if the type is small, and if the paper is grey. In other words, is it easy on the eyes? Sometimes publishers will condense big books into paperback by forcing too much script into too little space. If I can't keep the book open while eating a chicken curry, well then, it can't be read!
Thanks!

It's at Barnes & Noble, so you can probably see a copy there before deciding whether to buy one.

I'm camping out on Cape Cod, Ma. My real job is as a photographer...and soon will be leaving for Thailand. Might not get to a good bookstore before that. I'd like to order the book, but my eyes are sensitive. They don't like small print.
Thanks.

Hmm, Don't know. Hopefully a temporary problem.

Hi Mike

Bhikkhu Bodhi's book In The Buddha's Words is the best introduction to the Pali Cannon and is one of my constant companions

The link to the audio files is much appreciated

All seems to be working OK when I visited five minutes ago :woohoo:

I owe a lot to this book.
Bhikkhu Bodhi is one of the most gifted messenger of Dhamma.
His lecture mp3 is something that I listen to every single day and night.

I also have started to listen to the lectures. The introduction and history of early Buddhism is really fascinating for a beginner like myself.
When you go to the monastery home page its hard to tell if its true Theravada or a synthesis of that and Mahayana. Could anyone add any information as to the nature of their mission. What a loving act of generosity to make these lectures available for free to those interested.

How long is the duration of all the dhamma talks posted there? So I listen to ALL the mp3 of the provided link and it will be same as reading a book except that I do not need to read?

Hello unspoken, I think its better than reading a book, because Bhikkhu Bodi tend to explain things in a very easy to follow way. And for a beginner he really makes things clear. If you look at the page it usually tells you the length of each lecture if I remember correctly. It would amount to many hours I'm sure.
