A modern scholarly translation of Dhammapada, one of the most popular of all the Buddhist texts and the one which has been translated into English more often than any other. This new annotated translation replaces the one made for the Pali Text Society in 1931 by Mrs. Rhys Davids. It is based on the 1995 Pali edition produced by Oskar von Hinuber and K.R. Norman.
This translation is also available from PTS in hardcover.
The early translation (1931) by Mrs. C.A.F. Rhys Davids can be found in Minor Anthologies, Vol. I.
Also please see other translations of the Dhammapada available in Pariyatti's catalog.
