5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By M Jenkins on 7 Feb. 2010
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The Dhammapada is one of the most widely read Buddhist texts in the West and is probably one of the most frequently translated. It is often considered, along with works like the Baghavad Gita and the Tao Te Ching to be a classic of world religious literature and as such, of interest to many who would not consider themselves Buddhist.

This version, by Gil Fronsdal, who has trained within both the Soto Zen and the insight meditation tradition of Theravada Buddhism for many years and has a Ph.D. in Buddhist studies from Stanford, is my translation of choice.

The highly respected translator of Buddhist texts Carl Bielefeldt, of Stanford University, (who is thus qualified to comment on the quality of this translation) has said "A fine new translation of an ancient classic. Fronsdal's balance of fidelity to the text and sensitivity to its spirit is perfect. A book to be treasured." and Bhante Gunaratana, of the Bhavana Society, has said "I have read many Dhammapada translations in several languages, but never have I come across such a crisp, precise, and lucid translation as this."

This set includes not only a fine reading of the text but also the complete book from which the reading is taken.

Highly recommended.

Peaceful Truth 21 Jun. 2010
By Metta - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is one of the most uplifting and truthful scriptures I have ever read. The obviousness and timelessness of the words and phrases will transform your life. No matter what religion you, are these truths can permeate and make your life richer and more compassionate if you let them. Jack Kornfield is one of the most calming and peaceful speakers of our time. His reading of this translation brings it to life in a way no one else can. Blessings.

The companion book is an excellent introduction to the ancient text. This is also an excellent recording of the verses, and the reader's voice is well-spoken and pleasant. The Buddha on your iPod!

I was very happy with this purchase. I got alot for the money. I refer to the book and listen to the cds all the time. Understanding what is written here is critical for the learning Buddhist practitioner.

A very nice text and audio CD set. The Buddha's words are always good to hear again and again. Listen to this CD in your car on the way to work.

Far better than the Muller translation 25 Nov. 2014
By chaostheory_69 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
One of the better translations of the Dhammapada in English, far better than the one done by Muller especially since Fronsdal is a practicing Buddhist whereas Muller (the most widely read translator in English of this book) was essentially a bigot who did not respect the Dhamma.
