The Dhammapada – Siddharta Gautama / Dr. Glenn Wallis

Words of wisdom from one of the original deep thinkers.  Dr. Wallis’ translation includes notes which do a lot to provide context and translate the fundamental meaning of many of the expressions, that would otherwise likely be lost on the contemporary reader.  This is a canonical Buddhist handbook, to serve as a guide while one is journeying the path.  It has a logical structure that helps layer and build on the understanding presented as one moves further through the work.
