Is there one written by Buddha himself or dictated by him?

Thanks


Yes - the Dhammacakkappavattana Sutta, the Dhammapada, the Satipatthana sutta, and the Udana, out of that list.

Since I am not advanced on the Path, I cannot guarantee that what I say will always necessarily be 100% true or in line with the Dhamma. However, having had an extremely interesting life with a wide variety of different (many of them deep) experiences, I hope that anything I share will be of use, provide food for thought, and inspire interesting and beneficial discussions.

Mettā to all! :anjali:

A bit of a brag, I know, but I just found out if you enter "buddhism books" (without the quotation marks) into Google my site comes up second! Can't believe it!

Maybe I should upload more, now that I have more than 500 Buddhist PDFs on my PC... (and if anyone wants, send me a PM, and I will send you all of them through WinRAR, or I can simply upload it here if it's allowable, size is 500MB (EDIT: it seems the file is too big to be uploaded here, maybe won't work with the PM system either, I'll try to upload the RAR on my site and give you the link)

Great work, but just to point out that googling results is dependent on the country you're googling from.

Didn't know that. Thanks.

:thumbsup: Excellent, good job with that site.

Sometimes when I google for something related to a Dhamma question I want answered, this site comes up as the first or second hit. Or sometimes it comes right back to the same question already asked (with no answer yet) from this site. :tongue:

good idea, I recently uploaded all my pdf... to the cloud.
I will in a short while be sharing a old book that is not available anymore by Ajahn Maha-Boowa, Ill probably be starting something similar.
Blog, Suttas, Aj Chah, Facebook.

He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
...
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.
