Great disciples of the Buddha : their lives, their works, their legacy by Nyanaponika( Book )

3 editions published between 1997 and 2003 in English and French and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Great Disciples of the Buddha is a unique book - a collection of biographical profiles of some twenty-four extraordinary men and women whom the Buddha himself named his most outstanding disciples. The stories of their lives presented here, based on the Pali Canon and its commentaries, offer a comprehensive record of the most ancient traditions concerning the Buddha's own direct Dharma heirs." "In these engaging tales, told with an eye to the details of ordinary human concerns, you will meet a fascinating and diverse array of people - thinkers and seekers, princes and queens, merchants and housewives, even a serial killer - whose lives were transformed by their encounter with the Buddha. This is not a book merely to be read once and then laid aside, but a work to return to again and again for a vivid picture of the life of discipleship under the Awakened One."--BOOK JACKET

A comprehensive manual of Abhidhamma : the Abhidhammattha sangaha of Ācariya Anuruddha by Anuruddha( Book )

This modern translation of the Abhidhammattha Sangaha (Manual of Abhidhamma) offers an introduction to Buddhism's fundamental philosophical psychology. Originally written in the 11th or 12th century, the Sangaha has served as the key to wisdom held in the Abhidhamma. Concisely surveyed are Abhidhamma's central themes, including states of consciousness and mental factors, the functions and processes of the mind, the material world, dependent arising, and the methods and stages of meditation. This presents an exact translation of the Sangaha alongside the original Pali text.
