Tales of Freedom

Wisdom from the Buddhist Tradition

by Vessantara

A Zen monk strides empty-handed into a tiger’s cage. An Indian master spontaneously empties a bag of gold dust into the air. A young woman lays down the burden of her dead child and asks the Buddha to accept her as his disciple. Stories have the power to transform us. The wisdom of these beautifully told stories and Vessantara’s commentary can teach us how to break out of our self-imposed mental prisons and move towards freedom in our own lives.

Believe nothing merely because you have been told it… Do not believe what your teacher tells you merely out of respect for the teacher. But whatsoever, after due examination and analysis, you find to be kind, conducive to the good, the benefit, the welfare of all beings — that doctrine believe and cling to and take it as your guide.
The Buddha
