Description - The Way of the Buddha by The Rubin Museum of Art

"The Dhammapada" is a core text for Buddhists all over the world. Consisting of more than 400 sayings from Siddhartha Gautama, the founder of Buddhism, these inspirational words have been translated into every language in the two and a half millennia since the Buddha's death. "The Way of the Buddha" presents, for the first time, the complete text of F. Max Muller's 1881 translation alongside illustrations from the extensive collections of the Rubin Museum of Art. Each group of thought-provoking observations is accompanied by a beautiful piece of traditional Himalayan Buddhist artwork, portraying the Buddha as well as other sages in paintings, sculptures and textiles. "The Dhammapada" itself covers a wide range of themes, including old age, happiness, pleasure, anger, self-awareness, wisdom and evil. Gilded and bound in a printed case with a ribbon, "The Way of the Buddha" is a portable and elegant source of daily encouragement and spiritual illumination.
