The Dhammapada is one of the oldest collections of sayings of The Buddha. The collection of 423 verses appear in the Pali Canon and arise from specific stories during the teaching life of the Buddha. Each verse reflects the Buddha's response to the situation.
Jenny Hall is a Zen student of many years standing and originally a student of Daiyu Myokyo zenji.
The Zen school, unlike many schools of Buddhism, has no one particular text and will use any and all to illustrate and demonstrate the teachings of the Buddha. Jenny uses these verses to show how the Zen training goes and how Zen is firmly founded upon the teachings of The Buddha.
