The Dhammapada is a versified Buddhist scripture traditionally ascribed to the Buddha himself. It is one of the best-known texts from the Theravada canon.
The title, Dhammapada, is a compound term composed of dhamma and pada, each word having a number of denotations and connotations. Generally, dhamma can refer to the Buddha's "doctrine" or an "eternal truth" or "righteousness" or all "phenomena"; and, at its root, pada means "foot" and thus by extension, especially in this context, means either "path" or "verse" or both. English translations of this text's title have used various combinations of these and related words.


All that we are is the result of our thoughts
We are founded on our thoughts
We are made up of our thoughts

If we speak or act with an evil thought
Evil will follow us, like a shadow never leaving us

If we speak or act with a good thought
Good will follow us, like a shadow never leaving us
