Suttas are discourses by the Buddha   (563 BC - 483 BC) where all current teachers and traditions harnessed their teaching material.  Suttas therefore can be considered as going to the source of the teachings.

In this Sutta study course we take great care not to give new interpretations or use old commentaries in place of the sutta.  The commentaries are discussed separately and any interpretation would bear the name of the author. 



Once a sutta is completed it will be hosted in this web space where everyone can have access to it.  The page is interactive so your comments can be sent to the study group where the program will be updated from time to time.
