• Let us welcome this new translation of The Dhammapada, a simple and profound jewel of the Buddha’s teaching.—Jack Kornfield

    This seemingly simple book enjoys in Buddhism the place that E=MC2 does in physics.  Both subsume vast worlds in compact explicating principles. —Houston Smith

    The ancient verses of The Dhammapada contain the essence of the Buddha’s teachings.  This wonderful translation joins the accuracy of a great scholar monk with the down-to-earth wisdom of a poet-grandmother edition.  It’s a joy and blessing to read. —Joseph Goldstein

    An essential book for your shelf and pocket. A wonderful fluid translation. Every young person going away to school should read #5 The Fool, p. 17.”—Michael Malone, Books Inc., Staff pick
