So I told myself the Dhammapada is one of the oldest books of Buddhist thought. I should read it. What I wanted was a nice simple readable version that I could dip into. I discovered that most translations are completely unreadable, some more than others. A few modern versions attempt to clarify the text. I may be the first person to notice the problem who was a writer and not a translator.

What is most important, but invariably overlooked, is not what I am conscious of, but that I am conscious. The only way this can be verified or even considered is by “1st person” enquiry. A way by which this can be established is by koan practice. I explore ways to allay scientific suspicion towards subjective accounts, and show how koan study is used as first person scientific inquiry.
