Thank you Ajahn, thank you Piotr.

“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

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

Greetings,

I guess the obvious question is, how does this compare to Bhikkhu Bodhi's "In The Buddha's Words" as an introductory anthology to the Sutta Pitaka?

:?:

Whilst it sounds good, personally I'm planning on just getting the full nikayas in due course rather than deal with anthologies, but it would be useful to know in terms of recommendations to others (or presents!)

Metta,
Retro. :)

I try to avoid paying for suttas, if possible.
