This is the best translation I've found. ( )

Good clear poetic translation. Buddhism has always been interesting to me , as sometimes it approaches the level of philosophy so much as a religion - at least it does to my understanding. Good thoughts for living well. ( )

An amazing translation. Beautiful! This book is small enough to carry around in a pocket, and I keep it with me at all times. It's that amazing. ( )

This book is filled with short Buddhist proverbs. If you are only going to read one Buddhist text, this should be it.
