There are many books about the Dhammapada. I love and always like to read the following two of them: (1) A New Rendering by Thomas Byrom (with a Preface by Ram Dass and Photography by Sandra Weiner), and (2) Treasury of Truth (Illustrated Dhammapada) by Ven weragoda Sarada Maha Thero.

I enjoy the simple and clear rendering by Thomas Byrom and the beautiful Preface by Ram Dass. I enjoy the photos that are printed in the book. As for the Treasury of Truth, it is a very thick book (around 900 pages). I like the detailed explainations and stories, and artistic illustrations of the book.

I am happy to know that out of the ten most expensive paintings in the world, four of the artists I like: Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning, Pablo Picasso and Jasper Johns are in the list.

I got this information from this URL:

I took out this painting today. I have not seen this painting for a long time. It is quite a long painting. I can’t remember the exact year I painted it, most likely before the year 2000. I’ll find it out later and update it again in future. Meanwhile, please enjoy it.
