AbstractOf all the Buddhist writings, the Dhamma-Pada - -known for its accessibility--is perhaps the best primer of teachings on the dhamma, or moral path of life. It is also one of the oldest and most beloved classics, cherished by Buddhists of all cultures for its vibrant and eloquent expression of basic precepts. Buddha's beautiful, concise, and accessible aphorisms profoundly illustrate the serenity and unalterable dignity of the Buddhist path of light, love, peace, and truth.
Thomas Cleary provides an enlightening introduction that puts the work into historical, cultural, and religious perspective. In each section, he offers helpful and insightful commentary on the beliefs behind the wisdom of the Buddha's words, translated from the ancient, original Pali text. Its 423 practical sayings are grouped under eclectic and useful headings such as Vigilance, Evil, Happiness, Anger, Craving, and Pleasure. In its unique and lovely two-color Wisdom Editions design, these timeless sayings of Buddha will join the Tao Te Ching as a classic gift book and keepsake.
