<p>The Sutta Nipata (“The Sutta Collection”), the fifth book of the Khuddaka Nikaya, consists of 71 short suttas divided into five <i>vaggas</i> (chapters).

A useful printed translation of the complete Sutta Nipata is K.R. Norman's <i>The Group of Discourses (2<small>nd</small> ed.)</i> (Oxford: Pali Text Society, 2001). Excerpts from the Sutta Nipata also appear in <i>Handful of Leaves (Vol. 4),</i> Thanissaro Bhikkhu, trans. (Santa Cruz: Sati Center for Buddhist Studies, 2003). Another popular (though occasionally inaccurate) translation is H. Saddhatissa's <i>The Sutta-Nipata</i> (London: Curzon Press, 1985). Some of the passages listed below originally appeared in John Ireland's <i>The Discourse Collection: Ausgewählte Texte aus dem Sutta Nipata,</i> (BPS “Wheel” Publication No. 82).

The braces {} contain the corresponding verse numbers in the original Pali text, as listed in H. Saddhatissa's <i>The Sutta-Nipata</i> (London: Curzon Press, 1985).</p>
