Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Few sacred texts present their wisdom with the clarity of the Buddhist Dhammapada, or Path to Virtue. These ancient verses offer a compelling introduction to Buddhist thought, revealing the Four Truths — concerning the nature of the world and our lot in it — and the Eightfold Path to enlightenment, the means by which to overcome the essential suffering revealed by the Four Truths as the essence of life. Expressed with great beauty and translated with painstaking scholarship, this volume offers stimulating, challenging, and inspiring reading.

Synopsis:

Among the sacred texts of the world's great religions, few present their wisdom with such clear, simple accessibility as the verses of the Buddhist Dhammapada, or Path to Virtue. Gathered by Buddhist masters into related groups under such titles as "On Earnestness", "Flowers", "The Fool", "The Wise Man", "Happiness", and "Pleasure", these ancient texts form a compelling introduction to Buddhist thought. Expressed with great beauty, translated with painstaking scholarship, this volume is certain to stimulate, challenge and inspire any student of religion or seeker of wisdom.
