This superb little work by the eminent German scholar-monk is probably the best compact sourcebook in English on the Buddha’s basic teachings, all expounded in his own words. Translated into a dozen languages, it is now in its 16th English edition, yet still reads as fresh, clear, and vigorous as if it were just written.
