Gil Fronsdal’s version of this classic text will set a new standard for scholars and practitioners alike."—Stephen Batchelor, author of Buddhism without Beliefs and Living with the Devil

"The language is clear, precise, and inspiring, the phrasing spare and elegant, and the depth of these wisdom teachings apparent on every page. Gil’s wonderful work brings these timeless passages of the Buddha right into our hearts. Highly recommended."—Joseph Goldstein, author of One Dharma: The Emerging Western Buddhism
