Translation of the Suttas from the Dhammapada

Scope and Content

The series includes two original Gogerly manuscripts related to his translation of the Dhammapada text. The Dhammapada is a collection of sayings (423 in total) of the Buddha in verse form, and is one of the most widely read Buddhist scriptures. The original version of the Dhammapada is found in the Khuḍḍaka Nikāya division of the Theravādin Pāli Canon, and was written around the 3rd century BCE. Each saying recorded in the collection was made on a different occasion in response to a unique situation that had arisen in the life of the Buddha and his monastic community.
