Buddha, Gautama: The Dhammapada, v.1, 21 Jan 2008.

Translated from the Pali by Friedrich Max Müller.

A Collection of Verses
Being One of the Canonical Books of the Buddhists.

From The Sacred Books of the East. Translated by Various Oriental Scholars.
Edited by F. Max Müller. Volume X: Part I.


From Wikipedia:
The Dhammapada (Pāli, sometimes translated as Path of the Dharma. Also Prakrit Dhamapada, Sanskrit Dharmapada) is a Buddhist scripture, containing 423 verses in 26 categories. According to tradition, these are verses spoken by the Buddha on various occasions, most of which deal with ethics. A fourth or fifth century commentary attributed to Buddhaghosa includes 305 stories which give context to the verses.
The Dhammapada is a popular section of the Pāli Tipitaka and is considered one of the most important pieces of Theravada literature.
Although the Pāli edition is the most well known, a Gandhari edition written in Kharosthi and a seemingly related text in Sanskrit known as the Udanavarga have also been discovered.
Despite being a primarily Theravada text, the Dhammapada is read by many Mahayana Buddhists and remains a very popular text across all schools of Buddhism.
