Christopher Carter Sanderson's uniquely poetic and practical translation of The Dhammapada. Sanderson, working from Pali and Sanskrit sources, aims to artistically transmit the essence of Buddha's sayings in a form useful for meditation. Freely cast in a flexible, idiomatic and often catchy iambic pentameter, in tone ranging as needed from the academic to the profane, these verses combine musicality with a refreshing directness. This new creative realisation joins a galaxy of inspired translations of this great work to offer additional artistic insight and religious utility.
