      Hi Lal,

      Do you know of any dhammapada books that you can recommend?

      Thanks.

      I happen to have 3:

      (1)
      The Dhammapada

      by Narada

      This one has brief stories and notes to accompany the verses.

      (2)
      The Dhammapada
      Verses and Stories

      Translated by Daw Mya Tin

      This one is bigger because the stories are more extensive. The stories are in a different section of the book, so you’ll have to flip back and forth. There are also notes that accompany the verses.

      (3)
      The Dhammapada
      The Buddha’s Path of Wisdom

      Translated by Buddharakkhita

      The thinnest book of the 3: just the verses and translation.

      Hope you’ll find one you like; there are so many out there, with some free pdf books online.

      For me, I need as much background and context as possible, so I like (2) the most among the above 3.

      Best,
      Lang

      Yes. Those are good. Thanks, Lang.

      The second one is online and I use it often:

      The Dhammapada: Verses and Stories
