English Translation of the Madhyama Agama (Taisho 26)

Editor(s): Marcus Bingenheimer, Analayo, Rodney Bucknell

The Madhyama Āgama (Taishō 26), or Middle-length Discourses, belong to the earliest stratum of Buddhist sutra literature. The dialogues between Śākyamuni Buddha and his disciples and followers present the teachings of early Buddhism on Karma, death and rebirth, and the training of the mind in order to reach nirvana. The speakers often make use of parables and tales to illustrate the correct understanding of early doctrine. The Madhyama Āgama was translated into Chinese from a now lost Indian original in 398 C.E. It corresponds mainly to the Majjhima Nikāya of the Pāli canon, although many of its sutras have parallels in other sections of the Pāli canon. Volume I contains the translation of divisions 1-6 (of 18) and sutras 1-71 (of 222). Translations of the remaining divisions and sutras will be published in two subsequent volumes.

Based on the Sutta Central correspondence table, the 71 sutras in this volume have parallels largely in the Pali MN and AN. Some parallels in the DN and SN - http://suttacentral.net/ma

Links to the Hamburg University website will often have a short shelf-life as the site-owners are constantly renaming pages. When a link disappears the solution (if you know the article's name) is to search the site with Google.
