Description

Since its publication in 1950, this edition has established itself as a 'classic' and is essential reading for anyone interested in Buddhist philosophy and religion.

Dhamma means discipline, law or religion, pada the path or way; and together Dhammapada is the 'path of virtue'. This founding text of Buddhist teaching is here presented in both Pali and English by one of India's foremost philosopher and religious authorities S. Radhakrishanan.

The verses of the Dhammapada were believed from very early times to have been the utterances of Gautama the Buddha himself. S Radhakrishnan here prefaces the text with an introductory essay about Gautma Buddha, and provides explanatory notes in English to the text.
