Translated from Pali

This volume contains translation of the following texts:
1. The Book of the Great Decease (the Mahaparinibbana-Suttanta), which is the Buddhist representative of what, among Christians, is called Gospel;
2. The Foundation of the Kingdom of Righteousness (the Dhamma-kakka-ppavattana-Sutta), containing the Four Noble Truths, and the Noble Eight-Fold Path which ends in Arhatship;
3. The Discussion on Knowledge of the Three Vedas (the Tevigga-Suttanta), which is a controversial dialogue or the right method of attaining to a state of union with Brahma;
4. The Sutta entitled "If he should desire" (Akan-kheyya-Sutta), which shows in the course of a very beautiful argument some curious sides of early Buddhist mysticism and of curiously unjustified belief;
5. The Treatise on Barrenness and Bondage (the Ketokhila-Sutta), which treats of the Buddhist Order of Mendicants, from the moral, as distinguished from the disciplinary, point of view;
6. The Legend of the Great King of Glory (the Maha-sudassana-Suttanta), which is an example of the way in which previously existing legends were dealt with by the early Buddhists;
7. The Sutta entitled "All the Asavas" (the Sabba-sava-Sutta), which explains the signification of a constantly recurring technical term, and lays down the essential principles of Buddhist Agnosticism.
