This is one of the oldest collections of Buddhist discourses in the Pali canon; by far one of the most popular as well as the most important. Written in a mixture of prose and verse, it presents a code of conduct and provides the basis for a system of moral philosophy. A prime source work.


"Those interested in reading the Sutta Nipata in prose and English will find here an alternative to

other few published translations of these Buddhist scriptures, some with more traditional interpretations

of the original Pali text."

Patricia Ordóñez de Pablos, The University of Oviedo
