THE BUDDHA (STORIES AND PARABLES)
THE BUDDHA (STORIES AND PARABLES)
Description
About the Book:

A man with supreme humane qualities, the Buddha was born in India in the 6th century BC. He did not believe in theories and rituals, austerities and extreme attitudes. The Buddha discarded all these, realizing their futility, and showed the Middle Way, the path of peace and tolerance. He showered his compassion equally on all -be it prince Ajatashatru or a poor, old woman or even the elephant Nalagiri.

Beautifully illustrated, The Buddha -stories and Parables is not a dry historical biography. It captures the essence of the Buddha's great life through various stories, anecdotes and episodes that immediately lift the reader to another realm -the realm of love, grace and compassion.

About the Author:

Dr. Varsha Das has writing for children for the past forty years in Gujarati, Hindi and English. She has received several awards for her contribution to children's literature. She has also authored the Jataka tales, published by Madhuban. She practices Buddhist philosophy under the umbrella of Soka Gakkai.

Testimonials

Very easy to buy, great site! Thanks
Ilda, Brazil
Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.

Another three books arrived during the last weeks, all of them diligently packed. Excellent reading for the the quieter days at the end of the year. Greetings to Vipin K. and his team.

Your products are uncommon yet have advanced my knowledge and devotion to Sanatana Dharma. Also, they are reasonably priced and ship quickly. Thank you for all you do.
Gregory, USA
Thank you kindly for the Cobra Ganesha from Mahabalipuram. The sculpture is exquisite quality and the service is excellent. I would not hesitate to order again or refer people to your business. Thanks again.
Shankar, UK
The variety, the quality and the very helpful price range of your huge stock means that every year I find a few new statues to add to our meditation room--and I always pick up a few new books and cds whenever I visit! keep up the good work!
