Recensioner

The Dhammapada is a collection of aphorisms that illustrate the moral teachings of Buddha - the spiritual path to the supreme Truth. Probably compiled in the third century BCE, the verses are arranged according to theme, covering ideas such as self-possession, good and evil, watchfulness and endurance. Together they describe how an individual can attain the enlightenment of Nirvana, the supreme goal of Buddhism.

I'm not silly enough to review the Dhammapada; I'm reviewing this edition. So, just know that the Roebuck translation in Penguin Classics is probably not great if you don't know much about Buddhism, but is glorious if you do. The notes are mostly stories that have been used to explain individual verses, which are often very fun, and give you more insight into the religion than more sanitized, Western readings (in which Buddhism is mostly about stabilizing your brain-wave patterns).

Roebuck's introduction focuses on the textual history of the Dhammapada, which is useful for some scholarly purposes, I'm sure, but, again, not very useful if you're coming to ancient Buddhism for the first time. The glossary is very useful, though.

The teachings of Buddha in twenty-six poems or chapters total 423 verses. They have been ""transcreated"" here by a young Sanskrit scholar from the original Pali in a direct, contemporary idiom. They comprise a complete expression of Buddhist thought--about the nature of suffering and cessation of suffering, the wise man and the fool, craving, anger, punishment, the enlightened one, the saint. One must follow the eight-fold way of right views, right intentions, right speech, right action, etc., and ""Like a connoisseur picking a flower, the good man chooses Dhamma,"" so that he may become ""loving, fearless, serene."" A cleanness of line and phrasing characterizes this translation and is appropriate to a text which even in the reading frees the mind of the banal, the mundane and the transitory.… (mer)
