A recommended reading

Anyone who has a slightest interest in Buddhism would be well advised to read a small book entitled "The Pali Canon: What a Buddhist Must Know", by venerable P.A. Payutto. It was finely translated into English by Dr. Somseen Chanawangsa. The book, among hundred others (mostly in Thai) is available at Wat Nyanaveskawan's website.

I have read the Thai version first, then quickly browsed through the English translation quickly. It is a very good introduction to the Buddhist scriptures for the Theravada branch of Buddhism.
