 Ethics in Early Buddhism  David J. Kalupahana Ethics in Early Buddhism   $18.99  $14.24  Buy Now

TESTIMONIALS

In 1979, the year I met Ananda Mayi Ma, KD Sethna was kind enough to spend an afternoon in his house talking to a friend and me. While it was a joyful time with him, I did not realize then what a treasure he was. Vedanta as Universal Truth has become more and more meaningful over the years. There are many here interested in these teachings. Thanks to technology there is much greater access now. I'm happy to know about your work!...
