The Buddha’s Ancient Path

By: Ven. Piyadassi Thera

This is a book on basic Buddhism with a difference for it is written by a monk who is a native of Sri Lanka, a scholar and a well-known preacher. He has the Pali Canon and the Commentaries at his fingertips, so that the book is full of apposite stories and quotations of what the Buddha said—many of them hard to find elsewhere in English.

In recent years a number of expositions of the Buddha’s teaching have been published in English, but many lack authenticity and do not represent what the Buddha taught correctly. Hence the need for this authentic and comprehensive book based on the Four Noble Truths, which are the central conception of Buddhism, and the Noble Eightfold Path, which is Buddhism in practice.

‘The book … makes interesting and instructive reading, and the validity of the interpretations is not open to question. On the contrary, these interpretations, authoritative and unimpeachable, may be taken as a trustworthy guide.’

—I.B. Horner, Late President
Pali Test Society
