Buddhist Stories from the Dhammapada Commentary: Part II, translated from the Pali by E.W. Burlingame, selected and revised by Bhikkhu Khantipalo (2006; 32pp./96KB)
In the fifth century the great Pali scholar-monk Buddhaghosa wrote an extensive commentary to the much-beloved Dhammapada. His commentary provides background stories that set the stage for each brief verse, giving them an expansive context that greatly enriches their meaning. The present booklet is the second in a four-part anthology. (Additional volumes will appear on Access to Insight later in 2006.)
