If you’re interested in a daily dose of the Buddha’s teachings, here’s a free ebook (.pdf) called Daily Readings — Buddha’s Words of Wisdom, by Ven. S. Dhammika:
For over two thousand years the discourses of the Buddha have nourished the spiritual lives of countless millions of people. This book contains extracts of the early Buddhist discourses from the Pali Tipitaka, and also from some post-canonical writings. Presented so that one reading can be reflected upon each day of the year. This book is an indispensable companion for anyone trying to apply the Buddha’s gentle message to their daily life.
While I cannot condone the “post-canonical writings,” I understand the romance of encountering Theravada Buddhism for the first time, and it’s probably good to understand the orthodox culture that has called itself “Buddhism” for the past 2,400 years. And for sure, getting a daily fix from the Sutta Pitaka is essential for anyone seeking to establish a serious practice.
