Description
About the Book

Buddha and his teachings can be considered one of the greatest contributions of Indian civilization to mankind. Born as a prince to the powerful Shakya king, Siddhartha had everything in the world he could think of. He was provided with a happy and luxurious life, away from the suffering and misery of the human world. However, as destiny would have it, forsaking all the riches and glamour of the palace, he took to a life of a wandering ascetic in search of the truth.

He listened and studied under some wise saints of that time. He was not impressed because the teachings did not lead to the revelation of the truth and deliverance of beings from suffering. He practiced severe penance for six years, but this also failed to reveal the truth to him. He shunned the two extreme approaches and adopted the middle way as implied to him by the dakinis. With this he attained enlightenment, Nirvana.

He taught the people about the four noble truths and the eight-fold path. True to the prophecy of the sages, he conquered the world not with swords but with his teachings. From India, Buddhism spread to China, Tibet and throughout South East Asia. Today, Buddhism is travelling quickly to Western countries. Here we have reproduced the life of Buddha for children around the world.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
