Summary

Written in a time and a place far away, Joy for the World, offers rare delights to modern readers. Its author, Candragomin, is a literary master, one of the finest poets and scholars of his age. His subject, the deeds of the Buddha in a former life, lends itself naturally to a portrait of exemplary moral conduct. The medium - Sanskript drama at the peak of its craft - allows noble themes to be presented in the most lively and entertaining ways, with an elegance of language and style that has seldom been matched. This drama succeeds and pleases on multiple levels at once - as a work of art, as a moral and philosophical discourse, and as a keen presentation of the human psyche.
