Front Panel One of the ancient texts of the Pali Canon of Buddhism, the Dhammapada has a
revered place among the noted scriptures of the world. It is quite special in
its focus on the practical implementation of the Buddhas teachings in daily
life, through the examination and self-control of ones thoughts, words and
deeds. "Dhamma" is sometimes translated as "virtue," but in the deeper sense it
is the innate law of life. "Pada" means "footstep" or path. The Dhammapada is
not so much a religious text as a text of practical psychology for those wishing
to undertake an inner, spiritual discipline to change their lives. The Buddha
broke out of the conventions of his time in order to speak to the condition of
mankind and provide a path toward liberation from the wheel of birth, death and
karma, the chain of consequences. The Khammapada encapsulates his basic
teachings and provides guidelines for gaining insight and an understanding that
goes beyond any single teaching or religion. One of the "great books" of
humanity, the Dhammapada can provide benefit to seekers from any philosophic or
spiritual path with its timeless non-sectarian wisdom. The present edition is
especially valuable as it contains an English translation that is at once clean
and concise, while also filled with a spiritual sense and meaning in the reader
a sense of the reverence and spiritual aspiration that truly resides in the
text. The commentaries are by the Mother, who was the spiritual collaborator of
Sri Aurobindo and the spiritual guide of the Sri Aurobindo Ashram for many years
