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.

I really LOVE you! Wonderful selections, prices and service. Thank you!
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.
