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.
