Listen to the Dhammapada

The first section of James’ book Finding Freedom, includes his translation of the Dhammapada, and commentary. Wendy has been inspired to read and record this and make it available for us.  If you visit her blog you’ll find the introduction which James has written for the recordings along with what she has written there.

You can listen to her reading the text and also download the audios if you wish. https://simplybeing-sw.co.uk/audios-of-the-dhammapada-from-finding-freedom

This version is based largely on the 20th century translation into Tibetan by Gendun Chophel, a Gelugpa monk who spent many years in India. The translation was done in 1980  by CR Lama and James Low for inclusion in a volume containing Pali, Sanskrit, Tibetan and English versions. The book is freely available: Dhammapada.

Remember, you can also buy Finding Freedom from the publisher,  from Amazon and other places.
