Stories from Buddhist Lands (Paperback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


"Stories from Buddhist Lands", the fourth volume of "Great Buddhist Stories", brings to life profound Buddhist values such as love and compassion, simplicity and courage, as well as patience, forgiveness and understanding, in an engaging comic-book style. From India and Sri Lanka to Japan, China and Tibet, these stories impart important life lessons from the ancient Buddhist traditions. Meet, in vivid, full-colour illustrations: the rich, ungrateful man who tried to cheat his helpers of their promised reward; the kindly Abbot who helped a young man discover his true worth; the monk who did not fear death; the proud merchant who finds out that wealth and fame are not the most important things in life; and many more. A series of engaging comic books written by a Buddhist monk retelling the life and teachings of Siddhartha Gautama, better known as the Buddha, the Enlightened One. The best of ancient Buddhist scriptures is brought to life for both today's children, and adults. The series contains vivid illustrations meticulously researched to give an authentic depiction of the past.

Venerable S. Dhammika was born in Australia in 1951. He was ordained as a Buddhist monk in India and later lived in Sri Lanka where he became well known for his efforts to promote Buddhism. In 1985, he moved to Singapore to become spiritual advisor to the Buddha Dhamma Mandala Society, a post he held until 1992 when he returned to Sri Lanka. Ven. Dhammika has written numerous books and made several television films on Buddhism. Susan Harmer was born in Singapore in 1955. She taught music in England for many years before returning to Singapore in 1989 to embark on a career as an illustrator. Since then, she has worked extensively in both advertising and publishing. She now spends her time equally between teaching music and illustrating books. Her keen interest in Buddhism has led her to collaborate with Ven. Dhammika on Great Buddhist Stories.
