Overview

The Dhammapada, a core text for Buddhists all over the world, consists of more than 400 sayings from Siddhartha Gautama, the founder of Buddhism. Here, in a handsome and giftable format, The Way of the Buddha presents the complete text of F. Max Müller’s 1881 translation, alongside illustrations from the extensive collections of the Rubin Museum of Art in New York City.

Inspirational words are accompanied by gorgeous pieces of traditional Buddhist artwork, portraying the Buddha as well as other sages in paintings, sculptures, and textiles. The Dhammapada itself covers a wide range of themes, including old age, happiness, pleasure, anger, self-awareness, wisdom, and evil.

Bound with a ribbon and gilded, The Way of the Buddha is a portable and elegant source of daily encouragement and spiritual illumination.
