Studying the Suttas. Where should a beginner start?

Postby M.Takoda » Sat Jun 02, 2012 8:31 pm

Hello..Just two quick questions.

For an absolute beginner (like myself), where should I start when it comes to studying the suttas?
Is there any recommended sequence that I should follow?

With kind regards,

:namaste:

Just in case this site is not mentioned in those threads, it's quite good: http://readingfaithfully.org/
