Description About the author Contents
 
These remarkable stories, retold here by Eric Cheetham and beautifully illustrated by Roberta Mansell, contain within them an extraordinary degree of warmth and humour and provide a powerful insight into the Buddha's teachings. These stories from the Old Silk Road between India and China became the stock-in-trade of itinerant storytellers, who journeyed with the caravans in both directions. They would entertain the travellers by retelling tales of this kind around the campfires in the desert wilderness or in the caravanserais. This new publication from the Buddhist Society brings together twenty-one stories with over fifty colour illustrations, which are accompanied by a map of the Old Silk Road and an extensive glossary. In Further Stories from the Old Silk Road the reader is transported to a world of flying monks and hidden jewels, where a magical stupa appears and then vanishes and where heroes undertake extraordinary quests across ancient empires.
