i was really inspired to pick this book up after reading What the Buddha Taught by Walpola Rahula. And appropriately titled The Heritage of the Bhikku, it is really just a chronological history of the Bhikkhu.... informative but not an exciting read.

Impressive read. Now I plan to purchase other titles by Walpola Rahula. The delivery was quicker than estimated and book condition despite being used was like new.

Westerners in particular will have their eyes and minds opened by this wonderful little book. WE bring our Western attitudes and assumptions to Buddhism and in so many ways, we are just wrong--for example, that Buddhism ignores social responsibility to the poor or disenfranchised.
