Quantity:

This book is a good beginning book to understanding the parts, structure, and meanings of the Tipitaka. Tipitaka is the Pali word meaning "Three Baskets" used to describe the body of discourses and teachings (in three categories) credited to Siddhartha Gotama, or the historical Buddha. It is also called the Pali Canon. Specialized monks memorized his stories and discourses for centuries before coming together to put them into one body of work.

A descriptive overview is given for each section, or "basket" of the Tipitaka, including the Vinaya Pitaka (code of disciplinary rules for monks and nuns), Abhidamma Pitaka (collection of philosophical treatises), and the Sutta Pitaka (Buddha's discourses).

The author of this concise guide to the Tipitaka is U Ko Lay, who was formerly the Vice-Chancellor of Mandalay University and was a devoted student of Sayagyi U Ba Khin.

TESTIMONIALS

Your website is the best I have seen and reflects well the intentions behind your seva. (to bring out the knowledge of ancient realized scriptures - the Ved) Tamil Nadu is a Divine place. I realize the difficult challenges you must be facing there but progress forward with the goal to serve will make things turn out just right. Renounce the fruit of labor totally if possible - its tough on the ego but as you, unbounded bliss awaits immediately. Very difficult to find true seva working souls, everybody wants something. I feel your genuie will to serve and I salute you in greeting - namaste. May God provide for you all there and shower His/Her eternal joy and abundance to support you and guide you. Thank you for your heart warming email. I appreciate the service....
