Translated by Ven. Dr. H. Saddhatissa
Publisher: RoutledgeCurzon; 1 edition (January 17, 1995)
The Sutta-Nipata contains some of the oldest discourses in the Pali Canon. It is a rich source of texts offering guidance to lay Buddhists and also abounds in suttas that extol the contemplative ideals of early Buddhism. Though the Sutta-Nipata as a collection exists only in the Theravada tradition, some of the individual suttas are found in other traditions.
