Readings for 5/20

We will almost certainly finish “The Human Condition” of Bhikkhu Bodhi’s In the Buddha’s Words this Sunday and potentially start the next section: “The Bringer of Light,” readings concerning the Buddha’s path of practice, his Awakening and the beginning of his teaching career.

If you do not have access to the book, here are links to the suttas represented in “The Bringer of Light.” Notice that most of these are in the Majjhima Nikaya.

It is not necessary to read these passages to follow along in class, but of course it is recommended. For the most part excerpts appear in Ven. Bodhi’s book.
