The Dhammapada ( Pāli ; Prakrit : धम्मपद Dhammapada ; [1] ) is a collection of sayings of the Buddha in verse form and one of the most widely read and best known Buddhist scriptures . [2] The original version of the Dhammapada is in the Khuddaka Nikaya , a division of the Pali Canon of Theravada Buddhism.

The Buddhist scholar and commentator Buddhaghosa explains that each saying recorded in the collection was made on a different occasion in response to a unique situation that had arisen in the life of the Buddha and his monastic community . His commentary, the Dhammapada Atthakatha , presents the details of these events and is a rich source of legend for the life and times of the Buddha. [3]

The title, "Dhammapada," is a compound term composed of dhamma and pada , each word having a number of denotations and connotations. Generally, dhamma can refer to the Buddha 's "doctrine" or an "eternal truth" or "righteousness" or all "phenomena"; [4] and, at its root, pada means "foot" and thus by extension, especially in this context, means either "path" or "verse" (cf. " prosodic foot ") or both. In Tamil language 'Padam' means subject, [5] English translations of this text's title have used various combinations of these and related words. [6] [7]
