This small volume is especially meant for all those who aspire to brighten their day to day living, and who are seeking for inspiration and enlightenment. The Dhammapada can bestow this, gift: it has the power to bring to the heart and the mind of earnest readers “the right perception of existing things, the knowledge of the non-existent.”
There are soothing and comforting and encouraging verses in The Dhammapada; but, most of all, its sections awaken the mind and energize the heart and take them to a better way of living.
It offers tonic for self-examination, nourishment for reflection and stimulant for self-discipline. It raises consciousness from the sentient state to the plane of the Soul. There is peace born of insight, there is contentment born of understanding, awaiting the student-devotee who follows the foot-falls of Master Gotama Buddha.
