For Dependent Orignation these two i found very helpful

Buddhadasa (less orthodox teaching) - http://www.what-buddha-taught.net/Books ... uppada.htm" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Venerable Sayadaw U Sīlānanda - http://www.what-buddha-taught.net/Books ... ANATTA.htm" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Buddhadasa - http://www.what-buddha-taught.net/Books ... ebirth.pdf" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Ajahn Chah - http://www.what-buddha-taught.net/Books ... Truths.htm" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;


Other Topics


Ven Dr. K. Sri Dhammananda - http://www.what-buddha-taught.net/Books ... igions.pdf" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;


Ajhan Sumedho (strongly recomend this one) - http://www.amaravati.org/abm/english/do ... /cont.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;


Ajhan Chah - http://www.what-buddha-taught.net/Books ... n_Chah.htm" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;


There the free ones, ones you have to buy i would recomend

"The sound of silence" Ajahn Sumedho

"Mindfulness, bliss and beyond" Ajahn Brahm

"Mindfulness in plain english" Bhante Henepola Gunaratana

"Eight Mindful Steps to Happiness" Bhante Henepola Gunaratana

"Theravada Buddhism - A social history from ancient Benares to modern Colombo" Richard F. Gombrich

"The State of Mind Called Beautiful" Sayadaw U Pandita


AS for websites this is a great one for Theravada information

http://www.what-buddha-taught.net/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; (most of the above books come from there)

Just thought id share what works have greatly helped my practice, no doubt most of you will most likely be aware of most of these but thought i would share incase some are new and would benefit
