Description
From the Jacket

The Tipitaka is an extensive body of Canonical Pali Literature in which are enshrined the Teachings of Gautama Buddha expounded for forty five years from the time of his enlightenment to his parinibbana. The great division in which are incorporated injunctions and admonition of the Buddha on modes of conduct, and restraints on both bodily and verbal action of bhikkhus and bhikkhunis, which form rules of discipline for them, is called the Vinaya Pitaka. The General discourses and sermons intended for both the bhikkhus and lay disciples, delivered by the Buddha are collected and classified as Suttanta Pittka. The Philosophical aspects of Buddha teaching, is classified under the great division of Abhidhamma Pitaka. Combining all these three great division into one is known as Tipitaka. The present book is a compilation of the outline of the Tipitaka. The present book provides a bird’s eye view of the vast and magnificent canonical scenry which represents all that the Buddha and some of his disciples had taught and all that has been treasured in the Tipitaka.

Preface

The Tipitaka is an extensive body of Canonical Pill literature in which are enshrined the Teachings of Gotama Buddha expounded for forty—five years from the time of his Enlightenment to his parinibbana.

The discourses of the Buddha cover a wide field of subjects and are made up of exhortations, expositions and injunctions.

Even from the earliest times some kind of classification and systematization of the Buddha‘s Teachings had been made to facilitate memorization, since only verbal transmission was employed to pass on the Teaching, from generation to generation. Three months after the compiling of the Buddha, the great disciples recited together ail the Teachings of their Master, after compiling them systematically and carefully classifying them under different heads into specialized sections.

The general discourses and sermons intended for both the bhikkhus and lay disciples, delivered by the Buddha on various occasions C together with a few discourses delivered by some of his distinguished disciples ), are collected and classified in a great division known as the Suttanta Pitaka.

The great division in which are incorporated injunctions and admonitions of the Buddha on modes of conduct, and restraints on both bodily and verbal action of bhikkhus and bhikkhunis, which form rules of discipline for them, is caned the Vinaya Pitaka.

The philosophical aspect of the Buddha’s teaching, more profound and abstract than the discourses of the Suttanta Pitaka, is classified under the great division known as the Abhidhamma Pitaka a Abhidhamma deals with ultimate Truths, expounds ultimate Truths and investigates Mind and Matter and the relationship between them.

All that the Buddha taut forms the subject matter and substance of the Pall Canon, which is divided into these three divisions called Pitakas — li— terally baskets. Hence Tipitaka means three baskets or three separate divisions of the Buddha’s Teaching. Here the metaphor ‘basket’ signifies not so much the function of ‘storing up’ anything put into it as its use as a receptacle in which things are handed on or passed on from one to another like carrying away of earth from an excavation site by a line of workers.

The Tipitaka into which the Pali Canon is systematically divided and handed down from generation to generation together with Commentaries forms the huge collection of literary works which the bhikkhus of the order have to learn, study and memories in discharge of their gantha dhura, the duty of studying.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
