Synopsis

An anthology of 56 of the most popular and memorable Buddhist stories, selected from Burlingame's classic translation of the background stories to the Dhammapada commentary, Buddhist Legends. These stories bring to life, in vivid and colourful detail, the marvellous deeds of the Buddha and his great disciples as they travel across India spreading the message of deliverance. They introduce such unforgettable characters as the ascetic Bahiya, Santati the king`s minister, Cinca the brahmin girl, Pandita the novice, Sakka the king of the gods, the discontented monk Nanda, the grieving mother Kisa Gotami, the nun Patacara, and many more.
