One of the best-known and best-loved works of Buddhist literature, the Dhammapada forms part of the oldest surviving body of Buddhist writings, and is traditionally regarded as the authentic teachings of the Buddha himself, spoken by him in his lifetime, and memorized and handed on by his followers after his death. A collection of simple verses gathered in themes such as 'awareness', 'fools' and 'old age', the Dhammapada is accessible, instructional and mind-clearing, with lessons in each verse to give ethical advice and to remind the listener of the transience of life. Valerie Roebuck's new translation is accompanied by an introduction examining the language of the Dhammapada, its status as literature and the school of Buddhist teaching from which it comes.

The Dhammapada is the most widely studied Buddhist scripture, enjoyed for centuries by Buddhists and non-Buddhists alike. This classic text of teaching verses conveys the philosophical and practical foundations of the Buddhist tradition. The text presents two distinct goals: the first is attaining happiness in this life (or in future lives); the second is the achievement of spiritual liberation, lasting freedom, absolute peace. For centuries, this text has been studied in its original Pali, the canonical language of Buddhism in Southeast Asia. In Pali, Dhammameans truth, law, discipline. Pada means path, step, foot. Thus, this popular teaching text describes how to walk the path of truth. With extensive explanatory notes, this edition combines a rigorous attention to detail in bringing forth the original text with Gil Fronsdal's personal knowledge of the Buddhist path. It is the first translation of this text to be published in English that is both truly accurate and enjoyable to read.

Several major schools of Eastern thought are discussed, including Hinduism, Buddhism, Confucianism, Daoism/Taoism, and Chan/Zen. The author connects the ideas of these schools to those of Western philosophy, thereby making the material accessible to people who are unfamiliar with the cultures and intellectual traditions of Asia. A wide range of important topics are addressed: reality, time, self, knowledge, ethics, human nature, enlightenment, and death.
