//Bodhi Leaves//

Bodhi Leaves were published by the BPS as small hand-size booklets ranging between 16 and 40 pages in length (about 10 pages on standard size paper). Less expository and more conversational in tone than the Wheels, Bodhi Leaves offer personal reflections on the Buddha's teachings, close-up focus on specific social and human problems, and practical guidelines on living by the light of the Dhamma. Newcomers to Buddhism and meditation will find these booklets very accessible.
