5 Favorite Dharma Books

Danny Fisher had a link about his 5 favorite books. He spurred or was spurred by Tom Armstrong, Loden Jinpa, C4Chaos, Ryan, & Brondu.

Here are the ones I would want to take if I was trapped on an island with only 5 Dharma books allowed:

A Survey of Buddhism by Sangharakshita
Meeting The Buddhas by Vessantara
Middle Length Discourse of the Buddha
Vimalakirti Nirdesa
Ten Thousand Songs of Milarepa

If I could go to 10, I would add:
The Long Discourses of the Buddha
Know Your Mind by Sangharakshita
The Life of the Buddha: According to the Pali Canon By Bhikkhu Nanamoli
Buddhism Without Beliefs by Stephen Batchelor
