Excellent summary of early Buddhist teachings

This audio book provides an excellent outline and summary of the key teachings from early Pali Suttas. It is written by a Korean monk and in a few places it relates the early teachings to modern Korean Mahayana branches of Buddhism. This is helpful for anyone interested in relating these teachings to East Asian forms of Buddhism,but it in no way detracts from the usefulness of the text for persons who are purely interested in the original teachings of the Buddha that are preserved in the Pali texts, which of course is the book's main focus. It is obvious that great care was taken in every aspect of the production of this book. The writing is clear, concise, and comprehensive, and the narrator is excellent. I highly recommend his book and would consider it to be an outstanding addition to the library of anyone interested in these early teachings from the Pali Canon.
