Sayings of Buddha
Sayings of Buddha
Description
Introduction to the New Edition

The Buddha of whom it can be said had the greatest impact upon mankind during his lifetime. Thought almost lost in his country of origin he or rather his ideas have found universal acceptance throughout mankind. His ideas that revolutionized the thinking of humankind almost two and a half millennia ago still continue to have their impact wherever they are introduced.

They not only improve the quality of ones psyche but also inspire one to strive for the higher values of life. A life that to many of us today has lost any true relevance can once more be rejuvenated by the practice of his ideals. To live a life contented with ones achievements without the continual longing for something unreachable knowing that you have done good this is what he demands of you. It is a life so much in tune with the natural forces around you. Their practice provides you with a pleasurable and fruitful existence that allows you the freedom to exercise your thoughts and actions for the betterment of your environment.

This beautifully illustrated volume provides you with an anthology of some of most constructive and poignant thoughts of a being whose only wish was to improve the life of humankind. Simply to read and imbibe the peace that emanates from his thoughts is enough. It can do no harm to concentrate your thoughts for the improvement of a society that seems to have lost its bearings on its journey through life.

Simplicity in both life and thought is sufficient to give you purpose in your venture. No longer do you have to suffer the pain of tension and insecurity. You become secure in your existence as a being improving the quality of thought.

Back of the Book:

"Let a wise man blow off the impurities of his self, as a smith blows off the impurities of silver, one by one, little by little, and from time to time."

Buddha is not a god or a man carrying from heaven a supernatural revelation, to be accepted on faith. He does not speak of a God, a Creator. He does not tell why we live, but how to live. He teaches a way of life, a way to rise above the troubles of life, and finally a way to achieve the ultimate happiness of Nirvana, in which a state of blissful, untroubled peace accompanies the complete opening up of understanding.

This anthology of the Buddha's thoughts and sayings provides us with much food for thought. It gives us an opportunity to improve out minds, out lives and the thoughts and lives of those around us.

Hello, Just a short feedback on your new website layout: the old one was better than most of what you come across on the www, but you've managed to make it even better. I very much like the new look of the book pages and 'my gallery' pages. Thanks again for offering me a look inside the books. It's a big help for finding out if it's really what I want. Everything is perfect: the presentation of the items, your way of handling the orders, and the fast and always diligently packed parcels. Thanks to all at Exotic India, Walter

Exotic India is a fine organization to do business with. I have had the best trading experience and the very best customer service. The communication I have had with Vipin K. is of the highest quality; my questions and requests were quickly and professionally answered and fulfilled. A special thanks to the artist Kailash Raj for the beautiful art he produces; I have certainly been enriched by the way his art exemplifies the stories they tell. Many Thanks to all concerned.

My beautiful shawl arrived today. Thank you so much for this lovely shawl. Really, it is nicer than the photograph. I hope you and yours have a very Happy New Year and much prosperity in the New Year. With gratitude

An excellent website, as always. I do not even mention its content, which is beautiful beyond words, but I am merely referring to the great functionality and optimal design of your website. Links always work, the information is accurate and complete, images are very clear, including scanned content of your books. A pleasure to purchase from you.
Oreste, USA
I just wanted to extend my profound thanks to you for expediting my order. It was so well packaged and all import processes taken care of so the beautiful statue arrived in fabulous condition. It looks truly wonderful and I am so happy to have Lord Ganesh take pride of place in my home. Thank you again for your superb service. Best regards
