The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.Seeing misery in views and opinions, without adopting any, I found inner peace and freedom. One who is free does not hold to views or dispute opinions. For a sage there is no higher, lower, nor equal, no places in which the mind can stick. But those who grasp after views and opinions only wander about the world annoying people. -- The Sutta Nipata The Sutta Nipata ("The Sutta Collection") is the fifth book of the Khuddaka Nikaya. It consists of 71 short suttas divided into five chapters. You can read selected suttas, translated from the Pali by Thanissaro Bhikkhu, here. This site features sutta passages that originally appeared in John Ireland's The Discourse Collection: Selected Texts from the Sutta Nipata. This page gives a good overview of Buddhist Literature and where the Sutta Nipata fits into the overall picture.
