This book is a comparative examination of the main teachings
contained in the Sutranga portion of the Pali Samyutta-nikaya (SN)
and its counterpart in Chinese canon, a translation of a now lost
Sanskrit Samyuktagama (Za-ahan-jing) (SA). The SN and SA are
essentially two different versions of the same collection of
discourses.This study builds on the work of Yin Shun, which
demonstrates the historical importance of SN/SA in the formation of
the early Buddhist canon. In particular, it is based on Yin Shun's
recognition of the three-anga structure of SN/SA, and of the status
of its Sutranga portion as of prime importance in the historical
formation of this nikaya/agama, and as containing the most
fundamental teachings of Buddha. The aim of this research is to
reveal and clarify the similarities and differences between SN and
SA, with regard to the principal Buddhist teachings contained in
their Sutranga portion.
