Samyutta Nikaya

The Buddhist “bible” is called the Tipitaka. It’s a massive collection of texts that were first compiled by the Fourth Buddhist Council in 29 BCE. It’s divided into 5 nikayas (volumes). One of my favorite nikayas is the Samutta Nikaya, the 3rd volume, pictured here. As you can likely tell from the thickness of this book, the Buddha had a lot more to say than the handful of inspirational quotes floating around on social media.
