Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

We do not know if the Buddha could read or write. He left nothing other than the oral stories of his life, his inspiration and his teachings, passed from generation to generation. Later, his words and the incidents of his life were preserved for us on fragile palm leaves. These stories are as fresh and relevant today as they were when told under the cool moonlight of India 2,500 years ago. This collection of timeless, well-loved stories from the life of the Buddha is presented with simple elegance by Saddhaloka. By remaining faithful to the ancient Pali texts from which they are drawn, they allow us to enter the world of the Buddha and encounter an Enlightened One.

Synopsis:

A collection of inspiring stories from the traditional life of the Buddha, retold in a straightforward way for the modern reader.

Synopsis:

There are many stories about the Buddha in the Buddhist tradition. Some encapsulate profound teachings. Others illustrate the qualities of this truly remarkable figure — his clarity, his courage, his gentle humor, his kindness, and more. Here Saddhaloka retells in a simple and straightforward way the stories that have moved him most. Traveling with him along the dusty roads of ancient India, we meet the Buddha again and again. If we are able to grasp this precious opportunity, the Buddha's timeless wisdom and inspiring example will change us too.
