Printable checklist for Bhikkhu Bodhi's Thematic Guide to the Aṅguttara Nikaya

Post by BKh » Sun Jun 17, 2018 2:16 pm

So this page now has a printable checklist of Bhikkhu Bodhi's Thematic Guide to the Aṅguttara Nikāya:

https://readingfaithfully.org/bhikkhu-b ... nslations/

It is in Letter and A4, both as full pages (easier for printing) and booklet (easier to tuck into the book)

In an earlier post I asked how many people had used the thematic guide. Not many responded. I am guessing that beginners tend not to buy the AN, therefore a thematic guide like this is not so useful. In any case, having a nice checkable list might make it easier for people to stick with the reading.

The page also contains a hyperlinked version of the guide, connecting to Bhante Sujato's translations on SutatCentral.net.

Enjoy!

I really enjoyed this thematic guide. Do you have thematic guides for the other Nikayas as well?

Thank you

Bhikkhu Bodhi's first series of talks on the MN use this thematic structure:
https://bodhimonastery.org/a-systematic ... ikaya.html
as does In the Buddha's Words: viewtopic.php?f=25&t=14640 which covers a selection from all Nikayas.

Perfect thanks!

Now all we need is SN, DN, and if it's possible KN. ;)

Well, the SN is already organized by topic. Could you talk a bit about what you would want in a study guide? Would something like a list of Greatest Hits be useful?

I'm more interested in meditation, specifically anapanasati and the details for it. For example the AN theme guide really helped me see what I was missing, like the useful aids to anapanasati.

Without the thematic guide I wouldn't have found the suttas that compliment anapanasati. So I would like to see the same thing in the other nikayas. for example in your link here: https://readingfaithfully.org/bhikkhu-b ... nslations/

Under IX. Meditation, I can see what I'm missing and that aids anapanasati and even gives more context.
