    Dhammapada: The perfect Literature for Buddhists.

    I am a fledgling Buddhist, and am eager to soak up information. So naturally a book full of poems and verses on the religion was and is fascinating to me. It's got a handy pocket size so I can take it with me whenever I need a little affirmation, and it's just a great read. Any Buddhist who wants a little truth in their life; or anyone else for that matter, can find it in the blessed scripture of the Dhammapada.
