Dhammapada: The Sayings of the Buddha (Shambhala Pocket Classics)by Thomas Byrom
Synopses & Reviews
The Dhammapada is one of the most popular and accessible books in all of Buddhist literature. In it are the words of the Buddha, teaching that all suffering stems from desire and that the way to attain freedom is to purify the heart and follow the way of truth. Thomas Byrom's verse rendering of the Dhammapada uniquely captures the Buddha's original teachings with simplicity and lyricism.
A collection of sayings and short proverbs of the Buddha in verse form. They show how suffering is caused by desire and that tranquility is only possible by purifying the heart.
One of the few scriptures studied by students of all sects of Buddhism, the Dhammapada is treasured as a universally accessible summary of the teachings of the Buddha. It presents the Buddhist path of liberation and the lyricism of the Buddha's teachings in an unabridged, miniature edition. Two-color interior.
