Therigatha, composed more than two millennia ago, is an anthology of poems in the Pali language by and about the first Buddhist women. These women were the senior ones, among ordained Buddhist women and they bore that epithet because of their religious achievements.

Therigatha, based on a careful reassessment of the major editions of the work and printed in the Roman script common for modern editions of Pali texts, offers the most powerful and the most readable translation ever achieved in English.
