The Tree-Thrones of The Buddhas

Asha Das (Author)

The Tree-Thrones of the Buddhas’ unfolds a definite need, as up till now there has been no comprehensive study dealing with the Bodhi Trees of India. The Bodhi Tree lingers through centuries only to remind the humanity for all time to come the road to Freedom (Nirvana). In this fascinating book Dr.Das traces how trees led the Buddha to enlightenment from the encircling gloom. One wonders whether it was due to the hallowed presence of the Buddhas that the trees became sacred or whether the sacred trees were catalysts in bringing about the consummation of Buddha’s Enlightenment.

The identification of Bodhi-trees has now been made easy by the special key devised by her. So the reader will find it much simpler to use this key than the standard classification tables use in different books.
