Author(s): Dr. Binima Buzarbaruah
Abstract: The Dhammapada, which is one of the best known Buddhist scriptures, has a great ethical value. The path that leads to real happiness is very well depicted in this work. The teachings of Dhammapada are very much similar to the ethical principles found in ancient Sanskrit texts which lead to salvation. In this paper an attempt has been made to bring certain principles of the ancient Sanskrit texts to light which have their identification in the doctrines of the Dhammapada.
