The priceless teachings of the Buddha are preserved in Tipitaka, an extensive, detailed, systematic and analytical record. The Tipiṭaka (which means, literally, "three baskets") is arranged in three divisions: Vinaya Piṭaka, Sutta Piṭaka, and Abhidhamma Piṭaka.
Sutta Piṭaka is a collection of discourses on various subjects which is apt for a householder. It is divided into the five separate collections known as 'nikāyas', which is further classified into 'Vagga'. VRI has published a series of three books on the summary of the suttas contained in Sutta Pitaka. Written by Mr. S. N. Tandon, a senior Vipassana teacher and an authority on Pali language, this series provides a better understanding of each sutta.
Part 2 of this series contains suttas enshrined in Saṃyutta Nikāya (suttas with varied lengths, divided in five 'vagga').
This book is ideal for Vipassana meditators, non-meditators and research scholars interested in the Buddha’s teaching.
