Guest More than 1 year ago
'Quietly Comes the Buddha' is one of the most beautiful meditation books I have come across. The photos in the book seem to capture the many facets of the message. The words take you right to the heart of the Buddha and hold you there. I now have a much better understanding of the meaning of the Eightfold Path of Buddhism. I highly recommend it to anyone who seeks a peaceful corner in their world.
