9780140442847: The Dhammapada: (The Path of Perfection) (Classics)

Probably compiled in the third century B.C., the verses encompass the struggle towards Nirvana - the supreme goal for the Buddhist - and point out the narrow Path of Perfection that leads to it. 'In the Dhammapada we can hear the voice of Buddha,' writes Juan Mascaro, translator of the Bhagavad Gita and the Upanishads. 'This gospel of light and love is amongst the greatest spiritual works of man. Each verse is like a small star and the whole has the radiance of eternity.'

Book Description Penguin Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 1973. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 196 x 127 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. The Dhammapada is a collection of aphorisms that illustrate the moral teachings of Buddha - the spiritual path to the supreme Truth. Probably compiled in the third century BCE, the verses are arranged according to theme, covering ideas such as self-possession, good and evil, watchfulness and endurance. Together they describe how an individual can attain the enlightenment of Nirvana, the supreme goal of Buddhism. The road to Nirvana, as illustrated in The Dhammapada, is narrow and difficult to negotiate, but the reward of eternal life gives hope and determination to the traveller.
