    Looking for book suggestions

    Hi.

    One of the sanghamembers here, in skövde, sweden, asked for a book on Dukkha.
    He's mostly looking for a book that covers the whole thing, from history, implementation in sutras asf but grateful for all suggestions.
    Do you have any suggestions as to a good book on Dukkha, and, if you can, why do you recommend it?

    Huh, I've been thinking about that lately myself. Not so much a book, but a discussion of the idea of dukkha.

    So I don't have any suggestions, but I'm interested to see what comes up.

    Hi Fugen,

    Dukkha is covered in almost any book on Buddhism as a core Teaching ... the first of the "Four Noble Truths".

    Is your friend looking for a very academic analysis of the origin of the concept, or a more general explanation?

    I know some books that cover Dukkha in depth from an early Buddhist perspective or a South Asian interpretation. I know some books that discuss Dukkha as one topic in a general look at Buddhism. However, I do not know a book looking just at that from a Mahayana view too.

    Are there any that discuss the differences between these perspectives? That might be interesting.

    Fugen,

    I will likely never been of any use to you in a situation like this. If you don't know about it, chances are near 100% I won't either.

    Good luck.

    Hi.

    He's looking in an more deep, analytical look at it, but as said, maybe we should suggest other books on the subject here for others to look into?

    Hi Fugen,

    Walpola Rahula in what the Buddha taught could be a place to start from.

    But yes, as my Bro points out, it is just everywher in the core teachings.

    Hi Fugen

    I have not read it but this seems like it might hit the spot: http://www.wisdom-books.com/ProductDetail.asp?PID=11310

    Also, has he tried going to Access to Insight and searching on the term?

    Yes, like Taigu, I was going to Walpola Rahula's "What the Buddha Taught" too. He does present mostly his own view of what the Buddha taught, arising from his own Theravada background, but it is good. Thought I strongly advise to buy the book, a couple of Buddhist groups appear to have a PDF up. You can read his comments on Dukkha from book page 17 here.

    I have also seen the book Andy linked to, although I have not read it. It appears to be right on point. There is a partial preview here, and you can get a taste ... a very detailed look.
