In more than 400 verses the Buddha clearly expounds his noble path of virtue for everyman. This foundation scripture teaches the supreme doctrine of nirvana and the way to the highest possible happiness for mankind.
The Dhammapada or The Path of Truth is a beautiful anthology of proverbs and aphorisms which are considered to be as close to the Buddha‘s own words as we can ever reach. This work outlines the Buddha‘s Four Noble Truths: that life is full of suffering, which all of us must accept; that the cause of suffering is desire; that the removal of desire removes suffering; and finally that deliverance might be obtained by following the Noble Eightfold Path.
Translated by Oxford professor Dr. Max Müller, a great scholar and Orientalist.
