The Long Discourses of the Buddha

A new translation of the Digha Nikaya

Translated from the Pali by Maurice Walshe

Wisdom Publications London

Thus Have I Heard is new translation of the DighaNikaya, a collection of the thirty-four long discourses, given by the Buddha in India two and a half thousand year ago.

These sutras - some of the most popular scriptures in the Pali Canon – reveal the gentleness, compassion, power and penetrating wisdom of the Buddha. Included are teachings on mindfulness; on morality, concentration and wisdom; on dependent origination; on dependent origination; on the root and causes of wrong views; and a long description of Buddha`s last days and passing away; along with wealth of practical spiritual path.

Venerable Sumedho Thera writes in his foreword ‘They are not to be ‘sacred scriptures’ that tell us what to believe. One should read them, think about them, contemplate them and investigate the present reality, the present experience with them. Then, and only then, can one insightfully know the truth beyond words.

Introduced with vivid account his life and times and a short survey of his teachings. Thus Have! Heard bring us closer in every way to the wise and compassionate presence of Gotama Buddha and his path of truth.
