NEW BOOK> Wisdom Publications: Rebirth in Early Buddhism and Current Research

Dear Friends,

I am pleased to announce the publication of a new book, Rebirth in Early Buddhism and Current Research, by Bhikkhu Anālayo, published by Wisdom Publications.

Rebirth in Early Buddhism and Current Research brings together the many strands of the debate on rebirth in one place, making it both comprehensive and compact. It is not a polemic, but an interrogation of the evidence, inviting readers to draw their own conclusions.
