Great question, because there is a lot of difference between different translations.

 

The one by Ananda Maitreya, with the Thich Nhat Hanh intro is MY FAVORITE! I highly recommend that one. Plus, it can fit in your pocket. ;)

Ohh, You mean near to the "Throne of Thought" where one goes to "Sit and Think?"<grin>

Would you compare/rate it to an other version you have had the opportunity to examine?

 

I am of the opinion that such a series of reviews would be quite helpful to the beginner.
