The dhammapada is an essential for buddhists but i dislike how this translation renders certain buddhist terminology i.e. sangha or buddhist community is referred to as the church.

Very good version, though I have to agree with another reviewer in how it tries to accommodate certain terms to a less familiar reader. Otherwise it is very pleasant and easy to read.

Very inspirational quotes whichever page you turn to! Beautifully designed and organized. Definitely recommend this incredible book. I got one for myself and then as gifts and the receivers seemed delighted with it!
