I took 4 years to read this book. I like to read the Pali cannon, the remembered teachings of the Buddha, written much later, and now translated into modern English. To me these words are sacred.

There is now a complete translation of the Numerical Discourses, so I would get that book. This one came out in 1999, and when I got it, I think it was the only translation.

The life of a monk is very strict and dedicated, with many obstacles. And yet somehow I think there were fewer obstacles in the Bud

“It may be, Bhante, that some venerable one here thinks: ‘Could it be that this venerable one is intent upon renunciation on account of mere faith?’ But it should not be seen in such a way. A bhikkhu with taints destroyed, who has lived the spiritual life and done his task, does not see in himself anything further to be done or any [need to] increase what has been done.1370 He is intent upon renunciation because he is devoid of lust through the destruction of lust; because he is devoid of hatred through the destruction of hatred; because he is devoid of delusion through the destruction of delusion.
