http://dhammawheel.com/viewtopic.php?f=25&t=345#p88300" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
Bhikkhu Bodhi wrote:Then take Part II, the Nidana-samyutta [12]. This represents the noble
truths of the origin and cessation of suffering. You can also look at
Part IV-43 and 44-which again relate to the truth of cessation.
So this week I've posted the first two discourses from the Nidana Vagga — The Section on Causation http://www.accesstoinsight.org/tipitaka ... tml#nidana" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

With this week's Suttas:
SN 45.1: Avijja Sutta — Ignorance
http://dhammawheel.com/viewtopic.php?f=25&t=12968" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

we start the third part of Bhikkhu Bodhi's suggested analysis of the Samyutta Nikaya:
viewtopic.php?f=25&t=345#p88300
Bhikkhu Bodhi wrote: Then take Part V [45-56], just about all the chapters are
important. This is called in Pali the Mahavagga, the large
compilation, but in the Chinese Samyukta Agama it was called
Margavagga, the compilation on the path; for it represents the fourth
truth, the way to the cessation of suffering.

This weeks collection of suttas: The five destinations repetition series are the last suttas in the Samyutta Nikaya.

Members may recall that for the last three years we have been working through the SN using the ordering suggested by Bhikkhu Bodhi: http://dhammawheel.com/viewtopic.php?f=25&t=345#p88300 which is the ordering of the Chinese Samyukta Agama. Of course, we have not covered every sutta, there are too many for that!

Having covered the suttas that thematically represent the noble truths, there are now an assortment of suttas that do not fit into those themes, including the first book (of verses), http://www.accesstoinsight.org/tipitaka ... ml#sagatha which is at the end of the Samyukta Agama.

From next week we will alternate some of the remaining SN suttas with suttas from the Anguttara Nikaya, the Numerical Discourses of the Buddha. I intend to present those suttas in the thematic ordering suggested by Bhikkhu Bodhi in his recent new translation: http://www.wisdompubs.org/book/numerica ... ses-buddha

The Thematic Guide is included in this PDF preview: http://www.wisdompubs.org/sites/default ... review.pdf which also includes the introduction.

This small book collects key teachings on conflict resolution, interpersonal and social problem-solving, and the forging of harmonious relationships. Most of the suttas are available on-line, but to read Bhikkhu Bodhi's commentary you will have to purchase the book. I will summarise the highlights of his commentary.

I will add these suttas to our study cycle, working through the suttas chapter by chapter, inviting, in particular, comments on how these teachings can be applied to our lives. I will try to use the Sutta Central facility to highlight sutta sections, but sometimes will copy and paste text.

CONTENTS

I. Right Understanding
II. Personal Training
III. Dealing with Anger
IV. Proper Speech
V. Good Friendship
VI One's Own Good and the Good of Others
VII. The Intentional Community
VIII. Disputes
IX. Settling Disputes
X. Establishing an Equitable Society
