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.

I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
