Verses of the Elders -- Theragatha and Therigatha
Version 1.1

"Verses of the Elders" contains inspirational verses from the early Buddhist monks and nuns. This application randomly generates one of the verses each time it is opened, making it a nice addition to the Startup Items folder. Additionally, clicking on the quotation will generate a new verse. The verses can be saved as text files, and printed from the "File" menu.

The Theragatha and Therigatha contain stories in verse form in which the early monks (bhikkhus) and nuns (bhikkhunis) recount their struggles and accomplishments along the road to enlightenment. These stories are told with an often heart-breaking honesty and beauty which reveal the human side of these extraordinary men and women and serve as inspiring reminders of our own potential to follow in their footsteps.
