Product description

Providing an introduction to Buddhist doctrine and philosophy, this book focuses on The Three Jewels - supreme objects of commitment and devotion in the life of every Buddhist. The Buddha Jewel is the symbol of enlightenment, particularly as embodied in Siddhartha Gautama; the Dharma Jewel is the symbol of the path to human perfection, offering insights and practical guidelines designed to help the individual to plot a course towards enlightenment; and the Sangha Jewel is the symbol of the fellowship between those whose lives are based on the quest for enlightenment.

Illuminates the precious gems of Buddhism - the Buddha Jewel: symbol of Enlightenment, the Dharma Jewel: the path to Enlightenment, and the Sangha Jewel: symbol of the fellowship enjoyed by those who tread that path - in a clear and radiating light. To understand the Three Jewels is to understand the central ideals and principles of Buddhism.
