Theragatha : Verses of the Elder Monks(Introduction)Edit

The Theragatha (Thera+Gatha) consists poems(gathas) written by Theras i.e. Elder Monks(also known as Bhikkus) who were the foremost and fully enlightened (Arahats) & mostly of the time of Buddha. These infinitely self illuminated Elder Monks had also reached the other shore of Nirvana/Nibbana (transcendental dimension) where there is eternal bliss and eternal life. These accounts serve as inspiration to follow in their footsteps.
