Description

About the Book:

SARNATH, is one of the most important places of worship for Buddhists, the world over. Sarnath, about seven miles to the north of Varanasi, is a tiny hamlet where the Buddha preached his first sermon 2,5000 years ago. Called 'The Turning of the Wheel' (dharma chakra pravartana) the sermon summed up the essentials of Buddhist teaching. Focusing upon suffering, the Buddha argued that the cause of suffering was desire, and that if man wished to get rid of suffering he must first get rid of desire.

A Wandering teacher during much of his life, the Buddha travelled over the eastern Gangetic plain, preaching his doctrines, but he often stayed at the monastery in Sarnath during the monsoon months. In later years, Sarnath became not only an important centre of Buddhist art and thought but also one of the holiest shrines of Buddhism, visited by devotees from all parts of the world.

But the Buddha left God and divinity out of his system. Being an atheistic religion, Buddhism does not see God as essential to the universe, but acknowledges a natural cosmic rise and decline. It holds that the universe originally had been a place of bliss, but by giving in to desire, man made it a place of suffering. Man's salvation lies in freeing himself from desire and achieving nirvana or extinction, freedom from the wheel of rebirth.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
