A New Course in the Anguttara Nikaya with Ven. Bhikkhu Bodhi

The Numerical Discourses of the Buddha: The Ones

A New Course in the Anguttara Nikaya with Ven. Bhikkhu Bodhi

The Anguttara Nikaya arranges discourses of the Buddha according to a numerical pattern, grouping together suttas that revolve around the same number of items, from “The Ones” to “The Elevens.” This first series on the Anguttara will examine the entire chapter on the Ones—a short chapter that nevertheless covers many important themes in the Buddha’s teaching. The class starts at 9:00 am with a 50-minutesilent meditation. This is followed by a discussion of the suttas from 10:00 am to 11:20 am. The approach in this class will be more informal and conversational than in the previous class on the Majjhima Nikaya. Since the suttas in the Ones are very short, only the dates are given, not the names or topics of the suttas.

An electronic file of the Ones is available from the monastery for those who register for the course. Ven. Bodhi has translated the entire Anguttara Nikaya, published by Wisdom Publications (Boston, 2012, 1900 pages) under the title The Numerical Discourses of the Buddha.
