I came across the phrase the other day, "the highest happiness is peace." I knew i had heard words like that before and have since found that it is part of the Dhammapada, Chapter 15 verse 202. What i also found is that there are quite a few varying translations. The last verse of 203 usually reads differently, ao lso. Some seem to use the word "peace" for the 202 verse and then "nibbana" for the 203 verse.
My questions: What do you think is the best translation of these 2 verses and why? What do you think is the best online translation of the whole Dhammapada and the best book (either paper or hard)?
I do have a very old translationm which is probably not the best
i also would be interesting in discussing these 2 verses with others. Thanks!
While i am at it LOL, i am also interesting in finding a talk i listened to or article i read on (i think) highest aspiration that one has. I cannot seem to find it anywhere on my computer. I am always downloading stuff and then getting rid of them to make more room. Any help would be appreciated.
i promise that was the last request for today
