The Cowherd of Alawi (Comic Book)
Description
From the Book

Amar Chitra Katha is a collection of illustrated classics that retell stories from Indian mythology, history, folktale and legend through the fascinating medium of comics. Over 430 stories from all over India have been told in this series that has been endorsed by educationists and recommended by teachers the world over.

Through a masterful blend of commentary, dialogue and illustration, Amar Chitra Katha presents complex historical facts and intricate mythology in a format that would appeal to children. They not only entertain, but also provide a fitting introduction to the cultural heritage of India. In a country so vast and varied, the series also serves as a medium for national integration, by introducing young readers to the rich cultural diversity of the country and highlighting the achievements of local heroes.

Amar Chitra Katha comics are like family heirlooms, passed down from generation to generation.

Back of the Book

Gautama, as we all know, left home to find a way to eradicate human misery. He became Buddha, the enlightened one, when one day in a flash the truth dawned on him as he sat meditating under a Bodhi tree in Gaya.

He came back with practical solutions which even a layman could adopt. Those who followed him had to first accept and comprehend the four Noble truths -

That worldly existence is full of misery;
that desire and attachment are the causes of worldly existence;
that worldly existence could be ended by keeping out desire and attachment;
that there is a way to do this.

The path he advocated was the well-known eight-fold path. Right speech, right action and right means of livelihood to achieve control on the physical plane; right exertion, right-mindedness and right point of view for intellectual development. That these guidelines, when implemented, bring peace of mind is borne out by the Buddhist tales that have come down to us. A few such tales have been included in this Chitra Katha.

The last tale in this book is a Zen Buddhist tale from Japan.

I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
