Publisher's Summary

The Dhammapada is the single most important extant Buddhist text. It is unquestionably 'the voice of the Buddha' where many of his key ideas are presented in a cogent verse form. It opens: "All that we are is the result of what we have thought", and each of the following sections gives clear guidance on how to change our thought. Also included on this recording are other key Buddhist concepts illustrated by original texts.

Audio quality was very good and the readings are of course the same here as in print. I keep this one downloaded on my mobile and listen from time to time for some inspiration. Recommeded.

Great job

Would you listen to The Voice of the Buddha again? Why?

Yes. I have read the Dhammapada on my own, but I never got the understanding I did be listening to it being read.

The dhamma is unsurpassed

In this wonderful oration of the Buddhadharma the entire dhammapada and teachings derived from various sutras are voiced. This is an excellent example of a teaching for every Buddhist of all walks of life. An worthy teaching for non Buddhists as well.

repetitive and boring

find another interpretation than this one. I know the original scriptures are written in a somewhat poetic way, but this one is just annoying

Theravada

Follows the basic teachings of Buddhism. Which are my base and refuge. Uncomplicated and just what the doctor ordered to answer life in it's many generalities.
Thank you for this compilation.
