Product Description

Details

Out of the depths of a clear blue sky emerges a beautiful tree of white lotus flowers. On the tree are many figures - historical, mythical and transcendental - each a teacher of Enlightenment. This is the Refugee Tree: a compelling image which, in its many different forms, has inspired Buddhists for centuries. In this volume, Kulananda explains the significance of the figures on the Refugee Tree of the Western Buddhist Order. These teachers, each in their own way, have all changed the world for the better, playing a part in the creation of the rich Buddhist tradition we know today. Most significantly, however, the Refugee Tree is the focus of a transforming meditation practice. By engaging with this symbol of what we most deeply care about, we can bring ourselves closer to our goal of Enlightenment for the sake of all beings.
