A Manifestation of Compassion
This is a selection of eight readings from the book ’The Joy of Enlightenment’ by Tarajyoti Govinda.
Arjuna Govindamurti reads a selection of stories from Tarajyoti’s book on the life and times of Gautama Buddha (Siddhartha).
The readings focus on Siddhartha’s search for how to alleviate suffering in humanity. They tell the story of Buddha’s inner call and awakening; life circumstances, travels, practices and realisations.
Each reading lasts between 5 and 7 minutes, and is supported by images of Buddha and nature in a gentle and contemplative slide show.
