BPS Newsletter cover essays are short (1-3pp.) essays by Bhikkhu Bodhi that offer crisp and illuminating reflections on a wide range of Dhamma topics of immediate relevance to Buddhist practitioners. Drawing on scholarship and scripture, each essay addresses a specific theme concerning basic Theravada Buddhist principles and concepts. Many of these essays serve to clarify and disentangle some crucial points of Dhamma that are frequently misunderstood within the world of popular Buddhism.
Most of these essays are eminently suitable for newcomers to Buddhism and to meditation. A few will be primarily of interest to readers who are closely associated with the BPS and the Sri Lankan Buddhist community.
