Buddha`s Teachings contains a metrical English rendering of an important Buddhist work in Pali named `Sutta-Nipata` with the original text in Romanized version on the opposite page. The Pali Canon, as it has come down to us, is divided into three Pitakas or `baskets`, viz. Vinaya-Pitaka Sutta-Pitaka and Abhidhamma-Pitaka. The Sutta-Nipata, translated here, contains an ancient, probably the most ancient, part of the Sutta-Pitaka. It belongs to that portion of the Sutta-Pitaka which is named Khuddaka Nikaya or `Collection of Short Treatises` as distinct from the four long Nikayas called Digha, Majjhima, Samyutta and Anguttara. Of the five Vaggas (or `books`) of the present Sutta-Nipata the fifth stands out from its fellows by reason of its purposeful unity. Whle the Uraga, Maha, Cula and Atthaka Vaggas consist each of a collectioin of independent and unconnected poems (sometimes interspersed with prose) called Suttas, the Parayana aims at a dramatic synthesis. Its prologue and epilogue serve as a setting to the sixteen Questions which elicit Gotama`s gradual exposition of the saving `Way Across`.

THE Collection of Discourses, Sutta-Nipâta, which I have here translated, is very remarkable, as there can be no doubt that it contains some remnants of Primitive Buddhism. I consider the greater part of the Mahâvagga, and nearly the whole of the Atthakavagga as very old. I have arrived at this conclusion from two reasons, first from the language, and secondly from the contents.

Beginning this work, Max Muller provides a thorough introduction to his translation of the Dhammapada -- perhaps the best-loved piece of Buddhist scripture. In it he explores the chronology of early Buddhism and its literature. The translation itself is accompanied by copious notes on the choices Muller made in rendering the original Pali into English. The Dhammapada, a collection of wisdom-sayings, is traditionally held to consist of words spoken by the Buddha on various occasions. Danish scholar Viggo Fausboll then offers his introduction to and translation of the Sutta Nipata, a text generally reckoned to be among the most primitive parts of the Theravada Buddhist canon on the grounds of its language and the stage in the formation of Buddhism that it depicts. The Sutta Nipata consists of verse and prose passages celebrating the path to enlightenment discovered by the Buddha, a wisdom that speaks to us even today. Pali words in this second edition are set using modern diacritical marks.
