    NOTE the following review applies to the 1995 edition Two editions since have come out, the most recent in 2005 Some comments here likely do not apply to the most recent edition If you purchase the book, try to ensure you are getting the most recent version For my review of this translation I decided to take a different tack Since I am not a Pali scholar I am not qualified to critique Bhikkhu Bodhi s or Ven anamoli s translation, so I thought I would turn to someone who is namely, L.S Cousins of [...]

    I see no point in finishing all of the suttas right now I have read 110 out of 152 Reading directly from the P li Canon is somewhat essential, in my opinion, if you want a clear understanding of Theravada Buddhism, yet I can not recommend anyone who does not practice the Buddha s teachings to read the Majjhima Nikaya You are pretty much required to study the P li Canon to be able to understand all of it And since I do not practice Buddhism, except agree with a some of its core teachings, I m hap [...]

    The Middle Length Discourses in this translation aren t quite as accessible as the Long Discourses Digha Nikaya translated by Maurice Walshe, but they are certainly accessible enough I found myself turning to the notes often for explanations of phrases that sounded a little awkward, but had no trouble finding my way through the text Finding my way through the practice is another thing Indispensable for the study of early Buddhism.

    This is not a book to read like a novel It is like the bible It took me 20 years to get through it The man who gave it to me has since died and the world has moved on but the truths discovered by the Buddha live on Those truths are repeated in various forms and parables and stories over and over It is amazing how quickly the variables multiply as the Buddha enumerate states of being, ways of perceiving the world, emotions, senses, reactions, types of beings and stages of development The six int [...]

    When You walk into a bookstore, there are many, many books on Buddhism However, surprisingly, you rarely get anything which was spoken directly by the Buddha These are Middle or Medium length Discourses of words purportedly spoken by the Buddha Most are pretty accessible The translation is good and includes than ample explanatory notes that the interested reader can use to further elucidate points of the text that are not initially clear I don t know why one does not have access much frequentl [...]

    When I am walking on the path discovered by Buddha, the Majjhima Nikaya is like the home I can go back every time I got lost.

    In Spanish below What can I say about this wonderful book A collection of 152 middle length discourses by the Buddha and one of the core texts in the Pali Canon and thus being the core not only of Theravada Buddhism, but also of all Mahayana schools , in which many topics are discussed, but most of them being about the development of mental quiescence and insight in order to attain arahantship, liberation from the cycle of rebirth and all suffering The Buddha dialogues with a fascinating array o [...]

    Notes toward an eventual review 77 Mah sakulud yisutta struck me as particularly interesting in that the Eight Bases for Transcendence along with the descriptions of the practices for the four dhyanas and insight meditation, as presented here, appear to provide a possible scriptural basis for some of the later tantric practices which some claim were never taught by the historical Buddha It also may be notable that the wanderer to whom the discourse is addressed, identified initially as Sakulud y [...]

    I thought this book was very insightful Might be helpful to know a bit about the foundations of the Buddha s teachings, a good outline may be found at buddhaweb , then read the Introduction in the book Not all stories may apply or mean anything at first, but keep referring back to the foundations and see how they are woven in the stories.
