Paperback edition of the Suttanipata (without notes).
The fifth text of the Khuddaka-nikaya of the Sutta-pitaka, consisting mainly of verses, apparently compiled from a number of sources. Two chapters of the Suttanipata are mentioned by name in other Pali canonical texts, and the commentary upon them is also included in the canon. It is apparent that this text contains some of the oldest Pali poetry we possess.
