Easwaran presents the Dhammapada as a guide to spiritual perseverance, progress, and ultimately enlightenment — a heroic confrontation with life as it really is, with straight answers to our deepest questions. We witness the heartbreak of death, for instance — what does that mean for us? What is love? How does karma work? How do we follow the spiritual life in the midst of work and family? Does nirvana really exist, and if so, what is it like to be illumined?

A text that represents the Buddha's words to all practitioners -- lay and monastic -- its translation left nothing to be desired for. I liked the rather long introduction by Easwaran,, which delineated various key points of Buddhism, the separate introductions to each chapter, by a colleague of Easwaran they were very helpful in explaining the rather terse text chapters , and the text chapters themselves, translated by Easwaran -- very succinct and powerful Reading this was a great experience.

All in all, it put my understanding of Buddhism in clearer perspective. Mar 24, Cherie rated it really liked it Shelves: non-fiction , spirituality , yoga. This is a great interpretation of the Dhammapada, and it's great to read and experience it in a very different way - in the style of Easwaran.

Apr 01, Cherie Kephart rated it really liked it. Full of light and wisdom, a beautiful account of The Buddha's teachings. Dec 15, Merrikay rated it it was amazing. The Dhammapada is one of the most beloved of Buddhist texts. There are many translations and many books written expounding upon it. What sets Easwaran's apart is its profound simplicity.

Profound simplicity can seem like an oxymoron, but Easwaran is one of the teachers who is especially skilled at translating these teachings in English. He manages to take stories and ideas that originate in a different culture and retain the essence of that culture and teaching while finding a way, maybe an The Dhammapada is one of the most beloved of Buddhist texts.

He manages to take stories and ideas that originate in a different culture and retain the essence of that culture and teaching while finding a way, maybe an anecdote, to relate it to Western thinking. I will be reading more of his work. Five stars This review is from an early review copy of the book given to me by the publisher. Jan 24, Peacejanz rated it it was amazing. A lovely book - a clear discussion of the Buddha's teachings and movement toward Nirvana.

This is an excellent book for the non-Buddhist to understand what Nirvana is and to compare the teachings of Buddha and Christ without all the "religious" overtones.

I have been taught Christian ideals and beliefs and know little about other philosophies of life. The teachings are a blueprint for anyone who lives in the world and seeks a peaceful existence.

I received a review copy of this book through GoodReads. Dec 17, Sej rated it liked it Shelves: life. This book is essentially Easwaran's commentary on certain verses from the Dhammapada which he explains using anecdotes from his own and Buddha's life. The book seems weak in the beginning, but the chapter on Inner Journey is the reason why I really like this book. Easwaran talks about the various stages we go through once we start to meditate and how to deal with them.

Nobody teaches us these things, and Easwaran breaches questions that might have not even been evoked in our minds until we read the explanations and directions. Worth reading once. Aug 26, Joyce Yanney rated it really liked it Shelves: http-www-goodreads-com-book-show Eknath Easwaran translates this book. It was written as a guidebook for buddhists and non buddhists. Text of Buddha's actual words of short stories from teachers that he remembers during his lifetime.

Answers to our questions, heartbreak of death, love, how to follow spiritual life with family and work, how Karma works, does nirvana really exist and if it does what it is to be illumined.

Nirvana - a mysterious state of wisdom, peace, and joy. A book for a person that wants to learn of this lifes Eknath Easwaran translates this book. A book for a person that wants to learn of this lifestyle or to answer to the call of Buddha. Oct 28, Esther Marie rated it liked it Shelves: That said, I didn't care as much for this book.

It felt less cohesive to me, and I didn't enjoy it as much. I would think there would be better books out there for those learning about Buddhism. Aug 02, Cheryl rated it really liked it Shelves: advanced-reader-copy-contest. A fantastic clear translation that is helpful for beginners on up. It asks many questions for today's lifestyle and answers them with Buddhas calming words. Aug 28, Charles rated it liked it. I had hoped this was the full translation of the Dhammapada.

That said this is a great start to reading and understanding Buddhism. I would definitely recommend it to those interested in the topic.

The Dhammapada

It contains Easwaran's translation of the Dhammapada , a Buddhist scripture traditionally ascribed to the Buddha himself. The book also contains a substantial overall introduction of about 70 pages, [3] as well as introductory notes to each of the Dhammapada' s 26 chapters.

Selections from Easwaran's chapter titles, which in some cases differ from other translations, [13] [14] are shown in the table at below left.

Essence of the Dhammapada: The Buddha's Call to Nirvana

Much better than the Penguin edition. Highly recommended for a library of religious texts. The translation is great - true, it's the only one I've looked at to date, but it is a very poetic read. The commentary and explanation before each Eknath Easwaran is one of the twentieth century's great spiritual teachers and an authentic guide to timeless wisdom.
