Dropping all defilements and finding that final freedom in this very life is the main message of the most ancient Buddhist scripture the Sutta Nipata. Owning nothing and wanting nothing is one of the hallmarks of Illumination. Serenity here and now is a faithful rendering of the last 47 suttas of the Sutta Nipata.
The archaic and abstruse verses have been rendered in a modern and readily intelligible idiom, with the result that this book is a sheer delight to read. Some significant chapters are the wisdom of having no views, the head and its splitting, Be mindful always and the path to yonder shore. Serenity here and now is the third and final volume of the trilogy on the Sutta-Nipata.
The author’s two preceding works titled Nirvana the highest happiness and the first and best Buddhist teachings were both published by new age books.
