Bit in the end it turns bitter. This is the law, Ancient and inexhaustible.

There are five at the door To turn away, and five more, And there are five to welcome in. Joy Live in joy, In love, Even among those who hate. For great is the harvest in this world, Dhammapads greater still in the next. For he sees that wakefulness is life.

Thomas Byrom ( of The Dhammapada)

What have you taken with you? Vaidya according to different bibliographies; or did one publisher issue two translations in the same year? Four Stages Arhat Buddha Bodhisattva. He never returns evil for evil. Desire has left him, Never to return.

Lest you mistake the true way And fall into darkness. You are far from the end of your journey. For if the roots hold firm, A felled tree grows up again. However young, The seeker who sets out upon the way Shines bright over the world. The followers of the awakened Awake And day and night dhzmmapada watch And meditate upon their master. Only the master, Dnammapada is his purity.


Thirty-six streams are rushing toward you! The fool who knows he is a fool Is that much wiser.

What shall I call Teacher? He is pure, and sees. Who is there in this world as blameless? On the air they rise And fly an invisible course, Gathering nothing, storing nothing. He who harms the harmless Or hurts the innocent, Ten times shall he dhammapava – Into torment or infirmity, Injury or disease or madness, Persecution or fearful accusation, Loss of family, loss of fortune.


All that we are is the result of what we have thought: Quickly clear the way. He offends no one. But act upon the dhammapwda. Give whenever you can, Never be angry. He lives upon emptiness. Not on their backs Can he reach the untrodden country. With a quiet mind Come into that empty house, your heart, And feel the joy of the way Beyond the world.

He sees by virtue of his purity. Master yourself according to the dharma. Wakefulness Wakefulness is the way to life. And yet it is not good conduct That helps you upon the way, Nor ritual, nor book learning, Nor withdrawal into the self, Nor deep meditation. But if you cannot find Friend or master to go with you, Travel on hdammapada – Like a king who has given away his kingdom, Like an elephant in the forest.


On the edge of the forest Live joyfully, Without desire. Snap the flower arrows of desire And then, unseen, Escape the king of death.

Does passion disturb you? If we translate the title based on how the term dhammapada is used in the verses [see Dhp verses 44, 45, ], it should probably be translated ‘Sayings of the Dharma,’ ‘Verses of the Dharma,’ or ‘Teachings of the Dharma. In Tamil language ‘Padam’ means subject, [5] English translations of this text’s title have used various combinations of these and related words.

He is called uddhamsoto – “He who goes upstream. Its pure fragrance delights the heart. But now he gives up his freedom.

But this day and night The man who is awake Shines in the radiance of the spirit.
