Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The pith of Buddha's teachings are herein wondrously and excellently presented."
Joan Halifax Roshi, Head Teacher, Upaya Zen Center

"Provides access to the wisdom of the text in a way that invites further exploration of one's own transformation."
Kay Lindahl, founder, The Listening Center; author, The Sacred Art of Listening: Forty Reflections for Cultivating a Spiritual Practice

“The words of the Buddha become fresh and alive in this wonderful edition. Wisdom shines through, ready for application in daily life.”
Ani Konchog Drolma, head of monastic training at Gampo Abbey

“A friendly introduction to a sacred text at the heart of Buddhist teaching.”
Marcia Z. Nelson, author, Come and Sit: A Week Inside Meditation Centers

“These verses can be read and appreciated simply as wise philosophy; as such, they are part of the great literature of the world. But for those who would follow it to the end, the Dhammapada is a sure guide to nothing less than the highest goal life can offer: self-realization.”
Eknath Easwaran

“The verses, along with well-placed guiding annotations, will be inspiring to young people exploring the Buddhist path.”
Sumi Loundon, editor, Blue Jean Buddha: Voices of Young Buddhists

Library Journal
SkyLight Paths has republished and augmented a classic translation of one of Buddhism's core texts, the Dhammapada, supposed to have been uttered by the Buddha himself. Muller's plain and graceful translation has been lightly amended by Zen student and author Maguire, who provides well-informed and helpful notes. This book offers a welcome reintroduction to the Buddha's teaching: "Hatred ceases by love." Highly recommended. Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
