As a bee without harming the flower, its colour or scent, flies away, collecting only the honey, even so should the sage wander in the village.

Resources for Meditation and Buddhist Study

There are hundreds of books being published every year on the topic of Buddhism and meditation.  This list represents both new and classic books that are faithful to the Buddha’s teaching as taught in the Pali cannon.  You will also want to take advantage of the hundreds of free books and scripture translations available for free on line at Access to Insight, www.accesstoinsight.org, many by these very same authors.  Other books written by Bhante Gunaratana are listed on our books page.  This list is by no means exhaustive and is intended only as a starting point.
