The Itivuttaka is a newly updated translation of a collection of 112 short suttas, each one a prose passage followed by a verse.
This collection is shaped less by literary considerations than the Dhammapada or Udāna and is more straightforwardly didactic. The itivuttakas cover the full range of Buddhist practice.
On the basic levels, they focus on skillful and unskillful behavior, and on the advanced, they cover some topics found nowhere else in the Canon.
