Book 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.
