About The Book

Gulab works happily from dawn to dusk in the garden at the house on top of the hill. One evening he takes back with him a big bunch of magnolias for his wife. But on the way he gives away a flower to each of the friends he meets Raju Ghodawala, Tsering and her baby who have come from Tibet, Lachhami going back to her cows, Hari Dhabawala, the girl who loves to paint... And for his wife?

As Gulab wends his way home, the hill town of Shimla emerges in charming and unexpected detail. The places, the people and their stories come together as in a large painting, captured here in the Pahari miniature art style of the region, Himachal. Floating above it all is the beautiful magnolia, the soft white flower 'like the moon'.

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.
