The Dhammapada is a collection of the Buddha's teachings stamped with the power and practicality of one of the world's most appealing spiritual figures. From the first verse â" âOur life is shaped by our mind: we become what we thinkâ â" the Buddha tells what leads to joy and what to sorrow, and describes how to take our lives into our own hands.

âHis scholarship is impeccable and he writes with a depth of spiritual insight that few others have been able to achieve.â â" SSC Booknews

âEaswaran's clear, contemporary translation makes this classic of India's spiritual tradition particularly accessible to Western readers. His introduction focuses on what is universal in the Buddha's life, background, and teachings.â â" Bookpaper
