The Buddha's Journey Home: New Buddhist Fables


The Buddha's Journey Home: New Buddhist Fables by Robert Long

These fables characterize many of these values and ideas that the Buddha might have felt or described. After becoming disenchanted with the empty pleasures and goals of his life, he left his family and began to teach about truth (dharma). After 40 years of his life, he then returned to his palace at Kapilavastu. The fables, which are about the Buddha's return trip back home, are about the messages of tolerance, patience, and love that will benefit everyone.

I read new, exciting writers and established authors before publication and there is a great website full of brilliant books and opinions.


The books for review are always great reads, brilliantly written, and introduces me to a huge variety of, established and new, authors.
