Hello everyone, I'm interested in getting a translation of the Sutta-Nipata in English but I am not sure of the best possible version. Does anyone know of one they would recommend? I'm leaning towards the Viggo Fausboll translation but I honestly know little about it. Any tips?
Gain and loss, status and disgrace,
censure and praise, pleasure and pain:
these conditions among human beings are inconstant,
impermanent, subject to change.
Knowing this, the wise person, mindful,
ponders these changing conditions.
Desirable things don’t charm the mind,
undesirable ones bring no resistance.
His welcoming and rebelling are scattered,
gone to their end,
do not exist.
