Product Description

Details

 'Once upon a time there was a rich old man who lived in a vast mansion ...' Whatever our age, we never lose our responsiveness to story, myth and drama. The Buddha, knowing this, often taught in the form of stories and parables, and in the Mahayana phase of Buddhist history, the telling of stories became ever more mythical and magical. In this volume of his Complete Works, Sangharakshita introduces us to the strange and wonderful world of three of the best-loved Mahayana sutras - a world from which we emerge with treasures in the form of teachings and advice which, it transpires, are a great support in our approach to the very practical matters of how we are to live our lives in the everyday world.From the transcendental critique of religion and the means of unification offered by the Vimalakirti-nirdesa to the light shed on economics, ecology and politics by the Sutra of Golden Light, and the vision of life as a journey offered by the White Lotus Sutra, these commentaries offer a unique and deeply meaningful perspective on the value of human existence.
