Bodhi Leaves
 

The Buddhist Publication Society (BPS), founded in Sri Lanka in 1958, is an approved charity dedicated to making known the teaching of the Buddha.

BPS publications represent the standpoint of Theravada Buddhism, the oldest living Buddhist tradition of which the Pali Canon gives the most authentic account of what the historical Buddha himself actually taught. Bodhi Leaves is a series of small handsize booklets page ranging between 16 and 40 pages. Less expository and more conversational in tone than the Wheels, Bodhi Leaves offer personal insights into the Buddha's teaching, close-up focus on specific social and human problems, and practical guidelines on living by the light of the Dhamma.
