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.


You who lives only looking for pleasure
Your senses uncontrolled
You're not moderate in your food
Your senses uncontrolled
The tempter will certainly overthrow you
Just as the wind throws down a weak tree

You who lives without looking for pleasure
Your senses well controlled
You're moderate in your food
Faithful and strong
The tempter will certainly not overthrow you
Anymore than the wind throws down a rocky mountain
