From the time the Buddha became fully enlightened at the age of 35 until his passing away (maha-parinibbana) at the age of 80, he wandered from place to place, teaching the Dhamma (morality, concentration and wisdom) out of overflowing love and compassion for all.
Thousands of people, householders and monks alike, immensely benefited by practicing Vipassana irrespective of their caste, creed or status. The technique which helped kings like Bimbisara and Prasenjit or rich businessmen like Anathpindika, also helped slaves, poor people like Kisa Gautami and criminals like Aṅgulimāla to come out of their suffering.
This book narrates inspirational life stories of Vipassana practitioners at the time of the Buddha. It also provides an insight into the social system during that time.
This book is ideal for Vipassana meditators as well as non-meditators.
