In his forty years of teaching, the Buddha left behind teachings that would last for over two millennia. In Traveling to the other Shore, Venerable Master Hsing Yun has selected key stories from the life of the Buddha and his great disciples that teach the Six Perfections of Buddhism: giving, discipline, patience, diligence, concentration, and wisdom. Collected from across the vast Buddhist scriptures, these stories show both the depth of the Buddha¿s wisdom and the warmth of his compassion. Traveling to the other Shore is an excellent way for readers to learn from the Buddha¿s life and practice.
