Chosen by Buddha
This collection of Buddhist tales tell of Amrapali, an accomplished dancer who commanded the love and admiration of an entire town and of Upagupta, who was just a poor monk. Amrapali craved peace; Upagupta's bearing exuded contentment. Amrapali depended on the adulation of her audience; Upagupta spurned the attentions of the rich and famous. Their stories were different, but the Buddha's wise teachings linked their lives - and the lessons to be learned from them.
