The Dhammapada is a collection of the sayings of Buddha, that were originally in the Khudduka Nikaya, a division of the Pali Canon - the standard collection of scriptures in Theravada Buddhism. According to the Buddhist scholar Buddhaghosa, the sayings in the Dhammapada were made on different occasions and were responses that the Buddha gave to situations that came up in his life and that of the community he lived in. The sayings refer to things like punishment, thought, the Way, anger, pleasure, and happiness. This translation by F. Max Müller is taken from Volume Ten of the Sacred Books of the East series.

This book has 33 pages in the PDF version. This translation was originally published in 1881.
