The Laws of Nature and Their Benefits to Life

by Bhikkhu P. A. Payutto




When asked, if they were trapped on a desert island with only one book, which title they would take, both Luang Por Pasanno and Tan Ajahn Jayasaro named this. Anumodana all who have finally made this available in English!


Is or will the book be released in hard copy? I would not ask if there were no photographs of the book in hard copy on the pdf’s second page. I would be interested in purchasing such a book, given whom it has been praised by.


I found the link to the book in this post…

some people are trying to get in touch with those responsible for more information.



Yes I am trying to get in touch with those associated with this book about trying to find a hard copy. I was told they would distributed to Buddhist monasteries but I live in south Texas and it’s nearly impossible to find any. If anyone has any information please contact me as I would like to purchase this book. I have been waiting for years for this. I have downloaded the epub, which is is very convenient, but would love to own my own private copy. Thank you.



Only Ships to Thailand :(.

I was warned that this is the 2019 version

the post version is from 2021

One option is to use a print service and order a print version of the pdf. The limit is usually 700 pages so you might need to split the file in two parts. Unfortunately, it is a bit expensive but I’ve done it in the past for a few books I treasured.

Oh yeah! Did you use The Book Patch also? I used their service a few years ago and was quite satisfied!

Yes, I’ve been using The Book Patch. Another option is Lulu as well.
Although I have a large quantity of PDFs I still relate more to a physical book than to an electronic one.

(shout out to Mūsiko for rescuing my account)

I was able to get a couple of copies of Buddhadhamma from Kinokuniya Thailand, and a couple of copies from a book finding service. The book service was actually only about $25 a copy more than ordering them from Kinokuniya, which took about six months and several cancelations because the shipping they’d quote didn’t match the actuality. Unfortunately the shipping is 1/2 as much as the book itself.

The long and short of it is that I ended up with two extra copies, if anyone is interested (USA folks, I don’t want to try and sort out international shipping).

You can order your own too, but it takes a while for them to get it, and then ship it back out.



I shipped one of these out today to a forum member, so there’s one left.

Hard copies of the new edition of Buddhadhamma are now available to order from the Blurb print-on-demand service.


The entire book is divided up to seven separate volumes, along the large section divisions.

The cost is printing + shipping. It should work for the US, Europe, Asia, etc.

https://buddhadhamma.github.io/ is updated with the same information.
