Dhammapada, the big one edition

ISBN: 0195108604
John Ross Carter & Mahinda Palihawadana

It's of course best to start with the usual small print of the Dhammapada, but this 500 pages book is good with it's commentaries. It starts with the Dhammapada without commentaries in the beginning, but then comes 300 pages of commentaries. The commentaries have a lot of details and is very good in discussing the meaning of the words.

I recommend this book as your second reading of the Dhammapada.
Let a man not seek for the respect of his peers, but let him seek wisdom.

-- Dhammapada
