Hey everyone

Just wanted to share some books that i have found really helpful in my understanding of Dhamma

On Arahantship
Maha Boowa - http://www.what-buddha-taught.net/Books ... m#PART%201

Bhante Vimalaramsi - http://www.what-buddha-taught.net/Books ... utta_1.htm
http://www.what-buddha-taught.net/Books ... utta_2.htm
http://www.dhammasukha.org/Study/Books/ ... 3-2003.pdf

For Dependent Orignation these two i found very helpful

Ven. Prayudh payutto (orthodox/classical teaching) - http://www.what-buddha-taught.net/Books ... nation.htm

Buddhadasa (less orthodox teaching) - http://www.what-buddha-taught.net/Books ... uppada.htm


Venerable Sayadaw U Sīlānanda - http://www.what-buddha-taught.net/Books ... ANATTA.htm

Four Noble Truths

Ajahn Sumedho - http://www.buddhanet.net/4noble.htm

Ajahn Chah - http://www.what-buddha-taught.net/Books ... Truths.htm

Other Topics

Ven Dr. K. Sri Dhammananda - http://www.what-buddha-taught.net/Books ... igions.pdf

Ajhan Sumedho (strongly recomend this one) - http://www.amaravati.org/abm/english/do ... /cont.html

Ajhan Chah - http://www.what-buddha-taught.net/Books ... n_Chah.htm

There the free ones, ones you have to buy i would recomend

"The sound of silence" Ajahn Sumedho

"Mindfulness, bliss and beyond" Ajahn Brahm

"Mindfulness in plain english" Bhante Henepola Gunaratana

"Eight Mindful Steps to Happiness" Bhante Henepola Gunaratana

"Theravada Buddhism - A social history from ancient Benares to modern Colombo" Richard F. Gombrich

"The State of Mind Called Beautiful" Sayadaw U Pandita

AS for websites this is a great one for Theravada information

Just thought id share what works have greatly helped my practice, no doubt most of you will most likely be aware of most of these but thought i would share incase some are new and would benefit
