Dhamma-pada, or Way of Righteousness, is the name of the canonical books of the Buddhist sacred scriptures. It is one of the best known Pali commentaries written on the stanzas of the Dhammapada, a Buddhist canonical text which for its popularity and sacredness is often called the Gita of the Buddhists and has been enlisted as a representative Buddhist text of UNESCO collection.Written in the Pali language it consists of 423 stanzas which are reputed to be the very words of the Buddha. The Dhammapada commentary (in Pali, Dhammapad-Attha-katha) is ascribed to Buddhaghosa, the greatest of all the Buddhist scholastics. The Commentary purports to tell usìwhere, when, why, for what purpose, with reference to what situation, with reference to what person or persons.î Buddha uttered each one of these stanzas. In so doing, the author of the Commentry narrates 299 legends or stories. These stories are the preponderating element of the Commentary, and it is these which are here translated.Printed Pages: 1097. 102343

2 Eugene Watson Burlingame
Buddhist Legends: Translated from the original Pali text of the Dhammapada Commentary, 3 Vols
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8121507162 / 9788121507165; Reprint; Hardcover; New; New; 
Dhammapada or way of Righteousness is the name of the canonical books of the Buddhist sacred scriptures. It is written in the Pali Language. It consists of 423 stanzas. These are reputed to be the very words of Buddha. The Dhammapada commentary (in Pali Dhammapad-Attha-Katha) is ascribed to Buddhaghosa, the greatest of all the Buddhist scholastics. This aspiration is without due warrant, as appears from translator's Introduction. The commentary purports to tell us "where, when, why, for what purpose, with reference to what situation, with reference to what person or persons," Buddha uttered each of these stanzas. In so doing, the author of the commentary narrates 299 legends or stories. These stories are the preponderating element of the commentary, and it is these which are here translated.
