Welcome to BWB, londonbuddha !

That's good that you got such a cheap copy of the Dhammapada.

If you want to ask questions to other members, the place to do it is in the Buddhism for Beginners forum, because this one is just for introductions and welcomes.

You might also like to read and listen along to 'What is Buddhism' mentioned near the beginning of the topics in the Buddhism for Beginners forum:

http://www.dhammasukha.org/Study/Talks/Transcripts/WHAT-MAR03-TS.htm

and also 'On the Four Noble Truths'

Hello londonbuddha,

Be welcome to BWB!

The same as Aloka. Feel free to ask any question at Beginners Forum or join into any of the discussions at the other ones.

I suggest you to have a look at the Study Links (http://www.buddhismwithoutboundaries.com/forumdisplay.php?12-Study-Links) section too.

Welcome from an east end Londoner now living in Wales.

I have the Dhammapada by my bed and read regularly and sometimes meditate on the subject matter of what I have read.

The Dhammapada is one of the best known texts of Theravada Buddhism and is said to have come from the Buddah himself.

Peace

Gerry
