This volume includes two Canonical books of the Buddhists. The Dhammapada, translated by Max Muller is the most favorite Pali text. It is an interesting collection of verses giving a trustworthy picture of Buddhist thought, particularly in its practical and moral character. THE second book, Sutta-Nipta translated from Pali by V Fausboll is a collection of discourses in which we see a picture not of life in monasteries but of the life of hermits in its first stage. Thus we are face to face with the first germs of the system - the remnants of Primitive Buddhism.
