The Teaching of Buddha

“The Teaching of Buddha” is a collection of Buddhist teachings and not only contains the significant essence of the more than 5,000 sutras transmitted in Japan, but also includes selections from the Pali sutras transmitted to southern Asia. We have compiled these teachings into an easy-to-understand book so that everyone can receive these teachings, with or without any prior understanding of Buddhism.

Each language version of “The Teaching of Buddha” is downloadable now!
