New Guide to the Tipitaka is a reference for everyday readers, students or seekers who want a better understanding of the Tipitaka — a more than 2,500 year old collection of the Buddha's Teachings.

Just as the travel guide is used to navigate the highways and byways and the culture and customs of an unfamiliar country so to this reference guide to the Tipitaka may be used to navigate the Teachings of the Buddha.

New Guide presents both a bird's eye view of the whole Tipitaka and its individual components, along with detailed summaries of thousands of suttas and hundreds of the Buddha's parables.

Dhammapada verses with stories of occasions when they have been uttered by the Buddha, in the translation of Daw Mya Tin.

Dhammapada or way of Righteousness, is the name of one of the canonical books of the Buddhist sacred scriptures. It is written in the Pali language. It consists of 423 stanzas. These are reputed to be the very words of Buddha. The Dhammapada commentary (in Pali Dhammapad-Attha-katha) is ascribed to Buddhaghosa, the greatest of all the Buddhist scholastics. This ascription is without due warrant, as appears from translator's introduction. The commentary purports to tell us "where, when, why, for what purpose, with reference to what situation, with reference to what person or persons," Buddha uttered each one of these stanzas. In so doing, the author of the commentary narrates 299 legends or stories. These stories are the preponderating element of the commentary, and it are these which are here translated.

Translated from the original Pāli text of the Dhammapada Commentary by Eugene Watson Burlingame, Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences; sometime Harrison Fellow for Research, University of Pennsylvania, and Johnston Scholar in Sanskrit, Johns Hopkins University; Lecturer on Pāli (1917-1918) in Yale University.
