Last Days of the Buddha

Last Days of the Buddha

On the stirring final journey of the Buddha, covering three months, he instructs his disciples on the elements needed to keep the Dhamma strong and stresses the importance of putting his teaching into practice.

This work is the Pali Canon’s account of this last journey of the Buddha, ending in a small jungle town where he attained his final release. The sutta is not only a vivid historical document but a great religious classic. Includes helpful explanatory notes.
