The Udana, the third book of the Khuddaka Nikaya, offers a rich collection of short suttas, each of which culminates in a short verse uttered by the Buddha. Altogether there are eighty suttas, arranged in eight vaggas, or chapters. The Udana contains important Suttas dealing with the concept of Nibbana and Insight Meditation. It is also from here that the famous simile of the blind men and an elephant found its way into world literature. This unique bilingual study edition contains an English translation alongside the original Pali text. This allows any reader - even without knowing Pali - to casually read the text while deepening their fundamental understanding of some of the most important Buddhist concepts in the Buddha's own words.

Excerpt from The Udāna, or the Solemn Utterances of the Buddah, Vol. 28 By the destruction of Ignorance, Conformations are destroyed, by the destruction of Conformations, Consciousness is destroyed, by the destruction of Consciousness, Mind and Material From are destroyed, by the destruction of Mind and Material Form, the six Organs of Sense are destroyed, by the destruction of the six Organs of Sense, Contact is destroyed, by the destruction of Contact, Sensations are destroyed, by the destruction of Contact, Sensations are destroyed, by the destruction of Sensations, Desire is destroyed by the destruction of Attachment, Being is destroyed, by the destruction of Birth, Decay, Death, Sorrow, Lamentation, Pain, Grief and Despair are destroyed. Thus the whole mass of suffering is brought to an end. And the Exalted One, in this connection, on that occasion breathed forth this solemn utterance: "When the conditions of Existence dawn upon the strenuous, meditative Brahmana, When he understands the destruction of the causes, Then all doubts depart." 3. Thus have I heard. On a certain occasion the Exalted One, soon after the attainment of Buddhahood, dwelt at Uruvela on the banks of the stream Neranjara, at the foot of the tree of Enlightenment. At that time the Exalted One, after remaining in a sitting posture for seven days, experienced the bliss of Emancipation.

This book includes two small classics of the Pali Canon in one volume. The Udana, or Inspired Utterances of the Buddha, consists of eighty discourses, mostly short, divided into eight sections or chapters (vagga). Udana refers to the pronouncement, usually in verse, made at the end of each discourse and prefaced by the words: "Then, on realizing its significance, the Lord uttered on that occasion this inspired utterance." Thus udana means an inspired or solemn utterance spontaneously evoked by the understanding or realization of the significance of the situation that occasioned it. The Itivuttaka is a collection of 112 inspiring texts in mixed prose and verse. According to the commentarial tradition, The Itivuttaka suttas were collected by the woman lay disciple Khujjuttara. She was a servant who went regularly to listen to the Buddha and then later repeated what she had heard to the other women of the palace. She had become a stream-enterer after meeting the Buddha and subsequently converted the women of the palace to the teaching. The collection of these sayings became The Itivuttaka. (Note: This title was previously published under ISBN 9781681721125. Due to technical issues a new ISBN had to be assigned. Rest assured that both versions of this title are exactly the same.)

Two small classics of the Pali Canon in one volume. The Udana is a compilation of eighty short but deeply impressive suttas, each expressing the Buddha's joyful insight into the profound significance of apparently simple events. The Itivuttaka is a collection of 112 inspiring texts in mixed prose and verse. Both will prove to be constant friends and wellsprings of inspiration. With introductions and notes.

Bridging the gap between the world of science and the realm of the spiritual, B. Alan Wallace introduces a natural theory of human consciousness that has its roots in contemporary physics and Buddhism. Wallace's "special theory of ontological relativity" suggests that mental phenomena are conditioned by the brain, but do not emerge from it. Rather, the entire natural world of mind and matter, subjects and objects, arises from a unitary dimension of reality that is more fundamental than these dualities, as proposed by Wolfgang Pauli and Carl Jung. To test his hypothesis, Wallace employs the Buddhist meditative practice of samatha, refining one's attention and metacognition, to create a kind of telescope to examine the space of the mind. Drawing on the work of the physicist John Wheeler, he then proposes a more general theory in which the participatory nature of reality is envisioned as a self-excited circuit. In comparing these ideas to the Buddhist theory known as the Middle Way philosophy, Wallace explores further aspects of his "general theory of ontological relativity," which can be investigated by means of vipasyana, or insight, meditation. Wallace then focuses on the theme of symmetry in reference to quantum cosmology and the "problem of frozen time," relating these issues to the theory and practices of the Great Perfection school of Tibetan Buddhism. He concludes with a discussion of the general theme of complementarity as it relates to science and religion. The theories of relativity and quantum mechanics were major achievements in the physical sciences, and the theory of evolution has had an equally deep impact on the life sciences. However, rigorous scientific methods do not yet exist to observe mental phenomena, and naturalism has its limits for shedding light on the workings of the mind. A pioneer of modern consciousness research, Wallace offers a practical and revolutionary method for exploring the mind that combines the keenest insights of contemporary physicists and philosophers with the time-honored meditative traditions of Buddhism.

With more than 5,000 entries totaling over a million words, this is the most comprehensive and authoritative dictionary of Buddhism ever produced in English. It is also the first to cover terms from all of the canonical Buddhist languages and traditions: Sanskrit, Pali, Tibetan, Chinese, Japanese, and Korean. Unlike reference works that focus on a single Buddhist language or school, The Princeton Dictionary of Buddhism bridges the major Buddhist traditions to provide encyclopedic coverage of the most important terms, concepts, texts, authors, deities, schools, monasteries, and geographical sites from across the history of Buddhism. The main entries offer both a brief definition and a substantial short essay on the broader meaning and significance of the term covered. Extensive cross-references allow readers to find related terms and concepts. An appendix of Buddhist lists (for example, the four noble truths and the thirty-two marks of the Buddha), a timeline, six maps, and two diagrams are also included. Written and edited by two of today's most eminent scholars of Buddhism, and more than a decade in the making, this landmark work is an essential reference for every student, scholar, or practitioner of Buddhism and for anyone else interested in Asian religion, history, or philosophy.
