Speaking of 'Dhammic Stories', I have found the publication Great Disciples of the Buddha: their lives, their works & their legacy
by Nyaniponika Thera, Hellmuth Hucker and edited by Bhikkhu Bodhi, very inspiring.
The work includes biographical sketches of:
Great Women disciples inc:
Sirima and Uttara
Father and Mother Nakula[/list]
Most, if not all may be available from www.accesstoinsight.org
I highly recommend them.
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road
Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
