Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Synopsis:

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.
