DHAMMAPADA VERSES


By Venerable Dr K. Dhammadinna Thero, Doctorate of Philosophy (Pd.D.) from the Postgraduate Institute of Pali and Buddhist Studies University of Kelaniya, Sri Lanka.


The Living Message of the Dhammapada
The Dhammapada is a work familiar to every devout Buddhist and to  every serious student of Buddhism. This small collection of 423  verses on the Buddha's doctrine is so rich in insights that it  might be considered the perfect compendium of the Dhamma in its  practical dimensions. In the countries of Theravada Buddhism the  Dhammapada is regarded as an inexhaustible source of guidance and  spiritual inspiration, as the wise counselor to which to turn for  help in resolving the difficult moral and personal problems  inescapable in daily life. Just as the Buddha is looked upon as  the human kalyanamitta or spiritual friend par excellence, so the  Dhammapada is looked upon as the scriptural kalyanamitta par  excellence, a small embodiment in verse of the boundless wisdom  and great compassion of the Master.-Bhikkhu Bodhi
