The Dhammapada is one of the smallest books in the Khuddaka Nikāya, the fifth part of the Sutta Piṭaka, which is the second division of the Tipiṭaka, the sacred scriptures of Buddhism. The name Dhammapada means ‘Words of Dhamma’ and this work consists of 423 verses arranged into 26 chapters. The verses deal with a range of subjects, such as simplicity, evil, honesty, death, happiness, the monk’s life, virtue and liberation. Because of its convenient size and the inspiring way it deals with the Buddha’s teaching, the Dhammapada is the most widely-read and loved of all Buddhist scriptures. It has also been translated into most of the world’s major languages.

The Dhammapada, trans. by Narada Thera, 1963.
