Eternal Moments: teachings of the Buddha
A selection of stories and insights from the Buddhist tradition, as well as from the Buddha's original teachings – a beautiful illustrated anthology of important and inspiring texts for a popular readership
This essential collection brings together essential insights from the Buddha, alongside atmospheric photographs. 'My teaching,' said the Buddha, 'is about suffering and how to end it.' Often described as the 'great physician', he aimed to diagnose and offer a remedy for the pain and turmoil that characterise all human experience.
Teachings of the Buddha contains selections from the Pali canon and the later Mahayana sutras, as well as traditional Buddhist tales and fascinating extracts from Zen masters. Passages of commentary illuminate key meanings. Rooted in knowledge acquired thousands of years ago in the foothills of the Himalayas, the insights of the Buddha remain just as relevant today.
