Essence of Dhammapada contains selected verses of Buddha explained in simple and plain text, easy to understand and very practical. If you have read Esawaran' books earlier, you can clearly notice the Eswaran's narration style in this book, simple and full of small stores and his experiences. Must read book to every one and any one. You clearly make out how Eswaran urges the reader to get ready and answer Buddha's call to NIRVANA. The eternal adobe.
Very good book on the Buddha's way of seeing life and how we can go further and learn how to be a better person. Easwaran is a wonderful writer and makes you want to go to the end of the volume by teaching you something on every page. A very engaging and knowledgeable author.
Over the course of many years I have read many books on living a more spiritual life, making better choices in behavior and attitudes and these have been of great use to me to experience more peace of mind. I was attracted to this book as it promised a deeper insight to the eight-fold path of Buddhism and the attainment of Nirvana. It is an easy read and very easy to understand but requires careful reading to make the concepts a natural state of mind and thought - a way of life. It is an ongoing project with a goal - the end of suffering. I am happy that I purchased this book. Thank you.
This is a wonderful book which gives an insight into the ideas and principles of Lord Buddha in an engaging manner. Very readable and inspiring. I loved reading it and it has greatly added to my belief and experience.
Eknath Easwaran gives us another clear-headed and compassionate book on the spiritual life. His ability to clarify the dynamics of self-forgetting and living in the present is a gift to all of us. As always, his words are worth reading and rereading.
