The Numerical Discourses of the Buddha
The Anguttara Nikaya arranges discourses of the Buddha according to a numerical pattern, grouping together suttas that revolve around the same number of items. This ongoing class starts at 9:00 am with a 50-minute silent meditation, followed by a discussion of the suttas from 10:00 am to 11:20 am. This section of the class will continue with the study of 「The Book of the Threes.」
Ven. Bhikkhu Bodhi has translated the entire Anguttara Nikaya, published by Wisdom Publications (Boston, 2012, 1900 pages) under the title The Numerical Discourses of the Buddha. An electronic file of the suttas “「The Book of the Threes」 to be studied will be found here.
Following the class, we will have an all-afternoon meditation program from 12:40 to 3:50 pm, alternating sitting and walking meditation:

Note: Because of a persisting health problem, Bhikkhu Bodhi may on occasion have to cancel a scheduled Saturday morning class. We therefore suggest that you verify whether each class will be given before you travel to Chuang Yen Monastery. This verification can be done by either: (1) checking your e-mail, or (2) phoning the monastery.Location: Kuan Yin Hall, Chuang Yen Monastery, 2020 Route 301, Carmel, NY 10512Venerable Bhikkhu Bodhi, originally from New York City, has been a Buddhist monk since 1972 and is highly regarded as a scholar and teacher.
