Rough Passage to the Bodhi Tree
Rough Passage to the Bodhi Tree
Description

Back of the Book

A prince once gave up everything to attain inner peace, creating the world’s most treasured and well-known to coming-of-age story: Siddhartha’s journey to Enlightenment; his transformation from a mere mortal to an enlightened soul. Join Siddhartha, the ‘brooding dove’, as he wins Yashodhara’s hand in marriage, challenges his father-in-law, celebrates with wine and festivities and then, to everyone’s surprise and consternation, renounce it all. Seeking the path of the wise, he laid the noble path for us. This is the story of how an ordinary mortal came to see the light.

Aged ninety-two, Shiv K. Kumar injects the wisdom of a lifetime of writing into this immortal tale, fashioning the Buddha’s story into, possibly, each of our own. Rough Passage to the Bodhi Tree presents a vivid, evocative fable of the Buddha's life, with a strong spiritual element and wisdom to it. Shiv Kumar has made the Buddha's complex philosophiies, especiially of compassion and good action, deeply accessible
