Some sources say that the Buddha was born on or around April 8, 563 B.C. How many years have you been around without discovering his wisdom? According to tradition, the words of The Dhammapada come directly from the mouth of Buddha. This translation in particular is among the most poetic and spiritually insightful.

Needleman is a superb narrator for a beautiful translation. Poetic, swift, compelling, to be heard over and over again.
