Dhammapada: Wisdom of the Buddha
Translation by Harischandra Kaviratna
The Dhammapada, long perpetuated through oral tradition, is a synthesis of the Buddha’s ethical teachings. The present English translation by the noted Sinhalese pandit, Harischandra Kaviratna, with the original Pali text (in roman script) on facing pages, was produced after comparison with Sanskrit, Burmese, and Chinese versions. A glossary of Pali philosophical terms with Sanskrit equivalents and English definitions is included. In his introduction, Dr. Kaviratna discusses the history of the Dhammapada and its place in the Buddhist canon together with its relation to the Vedas and Brahmanical literature.
