Legacy of the Buddha: The Universal Power of Buddhism

Sanghamitra Sharma (Author)
Synopsis This book offers the story of Buddhism from its beginnings, in the life of Prime Siddhartha Gautama, his transfiguration as the Buddha and the metamorphosis of his vision into Buddhism, the religion. It continues with its migration to different countries and the development of a specific identity in each place, with ideas and practices distinct to each sect and school. History, fact and legend intertwine in the making of a philosophy that is the guiding light to three hundred million people worldwide. Deeply rooted in ancient traditions, Buddhism was virtually obliterated in its originating homeland, India, before making a comeback worldwide. Flexible, practical, and foremost an ethical creed, Buddhism’s ability to maintain its core beliefs while adapting to each new environment, is the secret of its continuing strength and growth. Hence also the growth of Buddhist adherents in all parts of the world today – for this creed, they claim, has the healing touch we all so desperately need.
