Buddhist Dhammapada

The Dhammapada is a collection of sayings of the Buddha in verse form and one of the most widely read and best known Buddhist scriptures. The original version of the Dhammapada is in the Khuddaka Nikaya, a division of the Pali Canon of Theravada Buddhism.

'Dhammapada,' is a compound term composed of dhamma and pada, each word having a number of denotations and connotations. Generally, dhamma can refer to the Buddha's 'doctrine' or an 'eternal truth' or 'righteousness' or all "phenomena"; and, at its root, pada means 'foot' and thus by extension, especially in this context, means either 'path' or 'verse' (cf. 'prosodic foot') or both.
