But for those who are beginning on the path or for those who are practicing and keen to learn more but do not know where to begin or where to go to find the information most relevant to them, it can be difficult to navigate the maze of the Buddha’s great body of discourses.

In this section, the teachings have been gathered under the umbrella of the most recognized and understood methods that the Buddha used to explain his teaching, mainly, The Eight-Spoked Path and the components of Wholesome Mental Development.

By using the navigation menu to the left, readers will be able to browse through these main topics and hopefully find it a little easier to find their bearing. In each topic, one will find relevant suttas that might be of interest as well as video talks and written teaching.

The body of texts that constitute the Buddha’s discourses, which have miraculously been preserved and passed down for more than 2500 years, is large and extensive. To know where to begin is not always easy. 

The Pāḷi canon was devised in such a way as to favor rigorous study through oral recitation and memorization from the monastic community. Today, we owe our privilege to have access to the Buddha’s words to the incredible devotion of the monks and nuns who, in the past, learned and memorized the teaching.
