Description

Translation of Theragāthā and Therīgāthā

The eighth and ninth texts of the Khuddaka-nikāya of the Sutta-piṭaka, these are collections of poems ascribed to elder monks (theras) or nuns (therīs) respectively.

Many of the verses are accounts of religious experiences, some of which also achieve a high poetic standard.
