Similes of the Buddha
By Hellmuth Hecker
This book is an introductory guide to the rich, wonderful, and profound world of Buddhist similes. The Buddha used many similes as a skilful means to facilitate the understanding of teachings that otherwise could appear overly abstruse and dry to his listeners. Thus, contemplation of the similes and the explanations as given in this book will widen and deepen one’s understanding of the Teaching of the Buddha.
