Recommended Book

Post by clw_uk » Wed Feb 04, 2009 4:17 pm

Just started to read my way through "Theravada Buddhism" by Richard F. Gombrich and thought I would recommend it.

It gives really good insight into some history of Theravada Buddhism as well as helping one understand the society that the Buddha lived in.
