Houston, TX (PRWEB) January 21, 2013
In his new French-language book “Le Dhammapada: Kinh Pháp Cú” (published by iUniverse), author Ngô Nhơn Hậu offers readers a thorough account of Buddha’s life, teachings and the experiences of his approximately 2,500 disciples.
After reading the Dhammapada, one of the most widely known Buddhist scriptures that consists of a collection of Buddha’s sayings presented in verse form, Hậu was inspired to translate the text into French and add his own interpretation of the work.
Much like the original work, “Le Dhammapada” delves into consciousness, the role of humans in the universe and the importance of learning restraint. Readers looking for a French-language version of Buddha’s verses that expounds on his original philosophy will find a wealth of information in the pages of this unique new book.
“Society needs to learn about the teachings of the Buddha,” Hậu asserts.
