A "moderator" from certain sect, corrected a post (not sure why it came up there...), telling:
Dhammapada is not "a teaching of the Buddha himself". Jains have a text which is 90% the same, so looks like it comes from before Buddha.
It would be interesting to read this pre-Buddha-Dhammapada, is such actually exist, to possible look then if it is "the same" or just as such assume-able, as:
...there are Jain anthologies that contain verses clearly related to some of those found in these Buddhist anthologies...
So the question here would be to react, either with support or with rejecing such claims (which have serious effects if wearing a mods hat), in ways that may provide things possible new to the Buddhas gathering.
Wishing inspired and concentrated googleing.
