Preface

When this little play was performed in London a year ago by the Irish players, some friends of mine discovered much details allegory, the Headman being one principle of social life, the Curdseller on the Gaffer another; but the meaning is less intelle-ctual, more emotional and simple. The deliverance sought and won by the dying child is the same deliverance which rose before his imagination, Mr. Tagore has said, when once in the early dawn he heard, amid the noise of a crowd returning from some festival, this line out of an old village song, ‘Ferryman, take me to the other shore of the river.’ It may come at any moment of life, thought the child discovers it in death, for it always comes at the moment when the ‘I’, seeking no longer for gains that cannot be ‘assimilated with its spirit,’ is able to say, ‘All my work is thine’ (Sadhana). On the stage the little play shows that it is very perfectly constructed, and conveys to the right audience an emotion of gentleness and peace.

Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
