Word of the Buddha

Ajahn Brahm retranslates and simplifies "the word of the Buddha" - a compilation of passages from the suttas by Venerable Nyanatiloka. The update is done in a book and also via a series of talks.

Ajahn Brahm undertook to remove the excessive repetition and modernises/adapts to the reality of today - to keep the listener or reader on the point of the teachings. Some of the translations of key words have been changed from those of Bhikku Bodhi.
