Hi,

Can somebody have any idea of a place from where I can find the original sources of all the Dhammapada verses? Are these dhammapada verses all mentioned among the suttas? if not how they only came to Dhammapada?

Gil Fronsdals translation cross references all of the verses found in the suttas. Its a great translation and can be gotten for cheap from Amazon.

Fronsdal's book, mentioned already, will tell you where (if anywhere) each Dhammapada verse is to be found elsewhere in the Sutta Piṭaka. Buddhaghosa's Dhammapada Commentary, available online, gives origin accounts for all of the verses, but these don't always coincide with those given in the Suttas.
