Your long time loyalty with Sivana continues to drive us to delight you with our unique assortment that we take great pride in curating for you. Setting your expectations and delivering to our high standard of exceptional customer service, is paramount to our team.

Over the last year and a half, we have navigated through unusual times that continue to bring challenges to how we operate. In recent months, we have been faced with unexpected supply chain hurdles, which inevitably result in product delays. Now with the added tension on global logistics as we move into the holiday season, we will only be able to guarantee Christmas delivery if orders are placed before December 1st. For that reason, we are offering everyone 25% off their order with code: THANKYOU25, as a thank you for shopping and supporting us early on as we continue to navigate through these challenges.

We will continue to release new arrivals throughout the month, but will not be restocking as we move into November. As always thank you for your loyalty.

Warm regards,

Sivana Team

 Dhammapada translated by Eknath Easwaran

As irrigators guide water to their fields, as archers aim arrows, as carpenters carve wood, the wise shape their lives. 
Dhammapada (145) 

Dhammapada means the path of dharma, the path of truth, harmony, and righteousness. Capturing the living words of the Buddha, this much-loved scripture consists of verses organized by theme: thought, joy, anger, pleasure, and others. 

The Dhammapada is permeated with the power and practicality of one of the world's most appealing spiritual teachers. Rejecting superstition on the one hand and philosophical speculation on the other, the Buddha taught the path to the end of suffering and showed how we can achieve lasting joy. He spells out our choices with a refreshing realism and frankness. And he insists that we be spiritually self-eliant: All the effort must be made by you. Buddhas only point the way. 

Easwaran believed that we need nothing more than the Dhammapada to follow the way of the Buddha. His main qualification for interpreting the Dhammapada, he said, was that he knew from his own experience that these verses can transform our lives. 

Features 

  • Easwaran's introduction gives a complete overview of the Buddha's core teachings, illustrating them with contemporary references. A master storyteller, Easwaran brings vividly to life Prince Siddhartha's spiritual quest and his transformation into the great teacher known as the Buddha. Perfect for first-time readers, with intriguing new insights for those familiar with this text. 
  • This translation is reliable, accessible, and elegant. The Dhammapada was originally written in Pali, a language derived from Sanskrit, which Easwaran studied from an early age. Easwaran's rendering has an expressive brilliance acquired through many years of immersion in English literature. 
  • Chapter introductions explain key terms and place individual verses into the context of the broader Buddhist canon for readers of all levels. A glossary and chapter notes are also included. 
  • This latest edition contains a new foreword, elegant new cover, and easy-to-read, two-color interior.

Easwaran's translation is accessible, reliable, and poetic. The introductions  includes an explanation of the cultural background, the key concepts underlying each text, and above all, Easwaran's insights into how we can apply the spiritual message to our own lives, right now. purpose of these contrasts is, very simply, to describe the difference between what leads to desirable outcomes and what does not.
