520    "Bhikkhu Bodhi's sophisticated, nuanced, practical 
       instructions on how to read the Pāli of the Buddha's 
       discourses is meant for students of early Buddhism who are
       already familiar with the basics of Pāli grammar and, 
       having become acquainted with the style and terminology of
       the suttas, wish to progress further in their reading, and
       for those who would like to gain as intimate an 
       acquaintance with the language and idiom of the texts as 
       possible and see how translations are constructed on the 
       basis of the original Pāli without studying the language 
       grammatically. Ven. Bodhi's meticulously selected 
       anthology of suttas from the Saṃyutta Nikāya includes 
       canonical, post-canonical, commentarial, subcommentarial, 
       medieval, and different types of literature composed in 
       Pāli, all prose texts. Students read and analyze suttas 
       from the major chapters of the Saṃyutta Nikāya with Ven. 
       Bodhi as he takes a sutta and gives a literal translation 
       of each sentence followed by a more natural English 
       rendering, after which he explains the meaning of each 
       word and the grammatical forms involved. By comparing the 
       literal translations with the Pāli, and following closely 
       the grammatical explanations, the student can determine 
       the meaning of each word and phrase and gain familiarity 
       with the syntax of Pāli sentences and the distinctive 
       idioms and style of expression in the Pāli suttas. The 
       passages are taken exclusively from the Saṃyutta Nikāya 
       not only for linguistic reasons (to preserve the fairly 
       uniform terminology and highly structured presentation of 
       the Saṃyutta and avoid the great variety of words and 
       styles of all four major Nikāyas, making it ideal for 
       students with limited time) but also for doctrinal 
       reasons. The major chapters of the Saṃyutta Nikāya, if 
       rearranged, provide a systematic overview of the Buddha's 
       teachings that mirrors the four noble truths, generally 
       regarded as the most concise formulation of the Buddha's 
       program of liberation. The system emerges from the order 
       of the chapters of this book: The first chapter contains 
       selections from the Saccasaṃyutta (SN 56), the Connected 
       Discourses on the Four Noble Truths, which are elsewhere 
       described as the "special Dhamma teaching of the buddhas."
       The four truths serve as the most concise statement of the
       Buddha's core teaching, a "matrix" that generates all the 
       other teachings and a framework into which most other 
       teachings can fit. We then turn to the other chapters in 
       this anthology for more detailed treatment on the content 
       of the four noble truths, such as the Khandhasaṃyutta (SN 
       22) for the five aggregates, or the Nidānasaṃyutta (SN 12)
       for dependent origination, or the three groups of suttas 
       on the path of practice-the Satipaṭṭhānasaṃyutta (SN 47) 
       for the four establishments of mindfulness, the 
       Bojjhaṅgasaṃyutta (SN 46) for the seven factors of 
       enlightenment, and the Maggasaṃyutta (SN 45) for the noble
       liberating eightfold path. The Buddha's discourses are 
       linked through a complex network of allusions and cross-
       references: a theme or topic treated briefly in one place 
       may be elaborated elsewhere; a term used in one sutta may 
       be analyzed in detail in another. This unique anthology 
       provides not only exceptional instruction in language 
       acquisition and translation theory and practice but also a
       systematically sophisticated and nuanced study of the 
       substance, style, and method of the major early Buddhist 
       discourses"--|cProvided by publisher
