— Wisdom's Blossoms —
Light of Consciousness Magazine, December 2002
Twenty-six true stories are collected in Wisdom's Blossoms - a delight to read, each story a spiritual classic. These are traditional stories of the kind that spiritual Masters tell to their devotees and Indian village folk gather to hear when the workday is done. The heroes and heroines are Buddhist, Hindu, Jain, Sikh, and Sufi saints. Their qualities, whether in triumph of disaster, wisdom or struggle, serve to teach, inspire, and uplift us.
Some of the stories may be familiar: The Buddha converts a terrifying bandit; Princess Mirabai's undying love for Lord Krishna overcomes all obstacles; Milarepa builds tower after tower in a desperate attempt to obey his Guru. Others are less well known: Namdev runs after the dog who stole his bread, in order to put butter on it; Ramanuja disobeys his Guru to bring enlightenment to the people; Jayadeva and Padmavati share a divine love; the compassionate monk Upagupta helps a courtesan. A great book to read to children again and again, and share the benefit every time.
