The Dhammapada is a versified Buddhist scripture traditionally ascribed to the Buddha himself. It is one of the best-known texts
from the Pali (Theravada) Canon. While the original Pali text and most of the older translations are in the public domain,
the editor has not been able to obtain permission from all the translators of newer translations that can be found in the internet.
In case permission could not be obtained in advance, we ask holders of copyright to kindly notify us if you disagree with having
your translation included in this free multingual version of the Dhammapada that is offered to a worldwide public for the purpose
of spreading the Dharma and making known the beauty of the Pali language. With metta, Linguasoft
