Note that this material also available on-line in the two PDFs listed here (currently numbers 2 and 3 in the list):

Of course, a printed book may be preferable, and this book seems to have rearranged the order of the material somewhat.

i do appreciate the writings of the Venerable very much in allowing me to deepen my understanding
:namaste:
Aflame with the fire of passion, the fire of aversion, the fire of delusion.
Aflame, with birth, aging & death, with sorrows, lamentations, pains, distresses, & despairs ......

Seeing thus, the disciple of the Noble One grows disenchanted. SN 35.28

This is really a great book. Ven. Analayo basically collects many suttas related to a certain theme (e.g. tanha) and then paraphrases that theme based on what those suttas say. Almost every page has multiple references and Ven. Analayo is clear to make the reader aware of when he introduces his own speculation. It's a great way to learn the nuances of a theme because it's hit from so many angles. I hope he writes another one along these lines.

His next book in the works is coming out in a few months and is called Perspectives on Satipatthana.

Perspectives on satipatthana book has been available for the kindle.

I hope he writes the book on meta meditation that he said he was going to write :)
When this concentration is thus developed, thus well developed by you, then wherever you go, you will go in comfort. Wherever you stand, you will stand in comfort. Wherever you sit, you will sit in comfort. Wherever you lie down, you will lie down in comfort.
