"A book to be kept close at hand for a lifetime--like the teacher and beneficial friend it will surely become for those with a deep interest in the dhamma...a book for our generation that will, I think, long endure as a classic of scholarship and render the teachings of the historical Buddha accessible to any who have eyes to see and the interest to look." (Inquiring Mind)

"Most welcome..." (Mountain Record)

about 2500years ago very vividly. I would like to recommend to you listening the author Bikku Bodhi's lectures
about this book on the web sites. ( http://bodhimonastery.org/a-systematic-study-of-the-majjhima-nikaya.html)
If you listen his lecture you can understand the content of the book more easily.
Actually his lecture is one of the best and the most kind one I ever had in my life about Buddha's teaching.
Through reading this book and listening of his lecture you can get the insight of the origin of your suffering
and how to deal with them succesfully.
