The Buddha and the Terrorist: The Story of Angulimala by Satish Kumar
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Once upon a time in northern India, there lived a violent and fearsome outcaste called Angulimala (meaning 'necklace of fingers'). He murdered people, adding their fingers to his gruesome necklace, and was terrorising the towns and killing people in order to gain power and control of the state. The Buddha set out to meet this monster, and through his powerof love and argument, Angulimala renounced violence and took responsibility for his past actions. He was able to create a new life built on compassion and respect for others. The Buddha & The Terrorist brings a message for our time about the importance of looking within to understand the causes of violence, and the possibility of a peaceful means of conflict resolution.
