Guatama Buddha the life and teachings

Add to cart
  • Description

The Life and teachings of the
Awakened One
by
Vishvapani Bloomfield

Whilst many accounts of the Buddha's life mix legend and history, this compelling new biography discriminates between fact and fiction to reveal Guatama, the remarkable human being behind the myth, and sheds new light on his teachings.

Plunging us into the noises, smells and jostling streets of Guatama's world, Vishvapani  Bloomfield brings the Buddha to life as a passionate and determined individual -  a striking modern figure who rejected contemporary beliefs and found his own answers by mastering his mind.

Even after He gained enlightenment and became the Buddha, Guatama experienced struggles as well as triumphs as he trod India's dusty paths..

He sought to establish a community of practitioners amid his society's divided culture and perilous politics, and how the ideas that became the Buddhist teachings grew from Gautama's efforts to address the needs and beliefs of his listeners.

Drawing on years of meticilious research into original sources, Guatama Buddha takes us to within touching distance of one of history's greatest figures.

The now famous book
by
David Michie

Warmhearted, irreverent and wise, this cat of many names, opens a window to the inner sanctum of life in Dharamsala.  A tiny spy observing the constant flow of private meetings between His Holiness and everyone from Hollywood Celebrities to philanthropists to self-help authors, the Dalai Lama's Cat provides us with insight on how to find hapiness and meaning in a busy, materialistic world. Her story will put a smile on the face of everyone who has been blessed by the kneading paws and bountiful purring of a cat.
