The Long Discourses of the Buddha

The Chinese Diamond Sutra, the oldest known dated printed book, 868 CE, Tang Dynasty.

The Long Discourses of the Buddha is an invaluable collection of the teachings of the Buddha, which we are very happy to present to our readers in this prominent translation work in English: "Digha Nikaya: The Long Discourses". The discourses not only represent a pinnacle of philosophy and morality, but also a source of a most notable poetic prose, whereby, through the use of metaphors, the most intangible conceptual ideas are passed down, for us to attempt to grasp.  

This precious work, edited by, Access to Insight, is offered thanks to the generosity of many, many authors, translators, publishers, and transcribers, who contributed their efforts absolutely free of charge, as an expression of dana.
