Bhikkhuni T.N. Tin Lien (Author)
Synopsis

The Dhammapada is the most, popular and best-known text of the pall Suttapitaka. It is a collection of chosen verses picked up from various discourses of five Nikayas. It is pregnant with great significance of practical moral and essential philosophy of Buddhism. Carefully studying concepts of Dhamma in the Dhammapada also help in catching the most specific concepts of the term Dhamma in the entire system of doctrine of the Buddha.

In the Dhammapada, the term Dhamma appeared in 48 verses which are summarized in following nine concepts. Just in the first and second verses, Dhamma is used in the sense of cetasikas (mental states). It is also used as law in verse 5; or as Buddhavacana (Buddha's teachings) in various verses. Dhamma also as means, way, state, practice and nature. In some other cases, Dhamma referred to phenomena, Budhipakkhiya Dhamma (Factors of Enlightenment) or as Samatha and Vipassand; or as Nine Transcendental and also as the Truth. Each concept is comprehensively discussed in each section of the present book.
