Offtopic: requesting something similar but for Hinduism.

Dhammapada is from Siddhartha Buddha and NOT Gottma Buddha, right? Which one are these works attributed too? Is it somehow both?

So will we remove him from the chart now? Was the accepting of (((western))) "Buddhists" into /lit/ just another liberal and misguided sense of compassion? And how do we keep /lit/ pure from California Dharma influences in the future?

Should all books not written by long ago dead Aryan men be removed?

Check out What The Buddha Taught by Walpola Rahula as well, here's a PDF:
https://web.ics.purdue.edu/~buddhism/docs/Bhante_Walpola_Rahula-What_the_Buddha_Taught.pdf
Also check out A History of Buddhist Philosophy: Continuities and Discontinuities by David Kalupahana
I also heavily emphasize the work of Nyanananda in this chart, available for free at seeingthroughthenet.net
Those are the works that should make everything click, especially the deeper teachings.
I hope you don't end up just buying one mindfulness book and going on your way, since there's a very compelling and sophisticated philosophy to be found within Buddhism, not just meditation.

Or start with What The Buddha Taught instead of In The Buddha's Words if you like - or both.

In that case, is this chart actually bad or is it just the Guenon-posters calling it bad? It seems at least better than the other Buddhism chart to me IMO since the other one was mostly Buddhism-lite "summary of the religion" books written by Western academics in the last 20 or so years. I don't get why this one would get so much more flack than the other one.
