The Numerical Discourses of the Buddha
A Translation of the Anguttara Nikaya
By Bhikkhu Bodhi
The present volume, which continues Wisdom’s famous “Teachings of the Buddha” series, contains a full translation of the Aṅguttara Nikāya. The Anguttara arranges the Buddha’s discourses in accordance with a numerical scheme intended to promote retention and easy comprehension. In an age when writing was still in its infancy, this proved to be the most effective way to ensure that the disciples could grasp and replicate the structure of a teaching.
