A new publication from the Buddhist Society bringing together twenty-one stories with over fifty color illustrations, accompanied by a map of the Old Silk Road and extensive glossary. In the Further Stories From The Old Silk Road the reader is transported to a world of flying monks and hidden jewels, where heroes undertake extraordinary quests across ancient empires. These remarkable stories, retold here by Eric Cheetham and illustrated by Roberta Mansell, contain within them an extraordinary degree of warmth and humour and provide a powerful insight into the Buddha's teachings.
Eric Cheetham has been an influential teacher and lecturer on Buddhism for over fifty years. He is the author of a number of significant works, the best-known of which is Fundamentals of Mainstream Buddhism. After studying Fine Art and Philosophy in California, Roberta Mansell moved to England in 1961. Since 1980 she has been a Zen trainee with Venerable Myokyo-ni and Martin Goodson at the Buddhist Society and the Zen Centre in London.
