The Way Things Really Are - Book IV of the Sutta-NipitaThe Way Things Really Are is translation of Book IV of the Sutta-Nipata by Lesley Fowler Lebkowicz, Tamara Ditrich and Primoz Pecenko.The Sutta-Nipata is one of the earliest texts of the Pali canon, coming from the same period as the Dhammapada, before the monastic tradition was strong.

According to the traditional sources, the entire Canon was for the first time written down in the first century BCE in Sri Lanka. Some scholars believe that the Sutta-Nipita describes the oldest of all Buddhist practices. It consists mainly of verses.
