Tales of Freedom: Wisdom from the Buddhist Tradition (Paperback)


In stock

A Zen monk strides empty-handed into a tiger’s cage. An Indian master spontaneously empties a bag of gold dust into the air. A young woman lays down the burden of her dead child and asks the Buddha to accept her as his disciple.

These are some of the scenes evoked in Tales of Freedom. Drawn from the rich variety of the Buddhist tradition, the stories convey a sense of inner freedom. We see ordinary people liberate themselves from anger and grief, and great teachers remain free even in the face of death. Vessantara’s commentary shows us how we can move towards that freedom in our own lives.

In this video, Laura Wilkes explains how reading Tales of Freedom has changed her life.
