TWO SMALL CLASSICS FROM THE PALI CANON

INSPIRED UTTERANCES OF THE BUDDHA &

THE BUDDHA'S SAVINGS

 

This book combines under one cover two of the most beautiful

and uplifting texts of the Pali Canon, the Udana and the

Itivuttaka. The Udana is a collection of 80 short suttas, each

beginning with a memorable incident that comes to the Budd ha's

attention and elicits from him an "Inspired Utterance"

expressing his insight into the event's deeper significance.

Opening at the foot of the Bodhi Tree shortly after the

Enlightenment, the Udana records some of the best known

incidents in the Master's life.

 

The Itivuttaka consists of 112 suttas in mixed prose and verse.

According to tradition, these suttas were collected by the servant

woman Khujjuttara, the Buddha's most learned woman lay

follower, from sermons given by him in Kosambi. The suttas,

elevated and profound, at times reach a pitch of lofty spiritual

exaltation.

 

The translations, which combine clarity and precision, follow

closely the original texts in all important respects. Helpful

explanatory notes, drawn mostly from their authorized Pali

commentaries, clear up Obscure points and provide additional

background information for the reader. The translator, John D.

Ireland, an English Buddhist, was a longtime student of Pali and

Buddhist canonical literature.
