Gautam Buddha was one of the most exceptional of free thinkers. His teachings influenced millions of people. This Amar Chitra Katha is a compilation of stories related to Buddhism. The first tells the story of Buddha himself and his journey to enlightenment. Angulimala is the story of a murderous dacoit whose life changed when he met Buddha. Amrapali, the dancer, had the world at her feet but chose to give up all and follow Buddha. The ugly but wise King Kusha wins the love of his wife, Princess Prabhavati, through perseverance. The Acrobat and Other Buddhist Tales are invaluable.
