Disciples of the Buddha

By Zenno Ishigami

The Buddha, founder of one of the world’s great religions, lived some twenty-five hundred years ago in northern India. The facts of his life and ministry are well known. But what of his disciples, the men and women who followed him during his life and preserved and spread his teachings after his death? This book relates the stories of not only the so-called ten great disciples but also eighteen other devotees-male and female, lay and ordained. The varied paths that led them to the Buddha and the highly individualistic forms of their common quest for truth evoke the Buddha’s all-inclusive compassion and the breadth of his teachings.

Zenno Ishigami is professor of Buddhist studies at Taisho University.
