Divine Stories

That is the title of the translation from the Sanskrit of Divyaavadaana an ancient collection of 36 Dharma stories & two sutras. This is part one, covering the first 17 stories. Bhikkhu Bodhi writes on the blurb:

These are essentially human stories that record the trials and struggles of the Buddha's personal disciples as they meander through the corridors of samsara, seeking light, purity and final freedom.

Andy Rotman is the translator, Wisdom the publisher. http://www.wisdompubs.org/Pages/display ... ch&image=1
