Publisher's Summary

Dhammapada means "the path of dharma", the path of harmony and righteousness that anyone can follow to reach the highest good. This classic Buddhist scripture is a collection of vivid, practical verses gathered from direct disciples who wanted to preserve what they had heard from the Buddha himself. Easwaran's translation of this classic Buddhist text is the best-selling translation in the US. In the comprehensive introduction, he brings the story of the young Prince Siddhartha and his heroic spiritual quest vividly to life. His overview of the Buddha's teachings is reliable, penetrating, and accessible. The Buddha rejected superstition on the one hand and philosophical speculation on the other. He taught the path to the end of suffering and showed how we can achieve lasting joy. In The Dhammapada he spells out our choices with a refreshing realism and frankness.

Audio doesn’t include full book

The audio doesn’t include the full book. It only includes the book introduction, and the verses. Each chapter has an introduction that is not included in the audio, but required to read in order to undertake the book’s teachings. Therefore this was a disappointment.

No Hindu spin

The two religions are similar and since some of this book focuses on the spiritual side of Buddhism the similarities are there.
If you are from the west you will love having Paul Bazely as the reader.
