The Buddha's Wife
Written By: ,

Duration: 9 hours 25 minutes
The first part of the audiobook is a fictional narrative of Yasodhara's life story, the second part is a listener's companion-both expertly interwoven by authors Samuel Shem and Janet Surrey. The account of Yasodhara's life is one full of loss, grief, and suffering. Through these intimate experiences, she discovers enlightenment within the deep bonds of community and "ordinary" relationships. Her story becomes a metaphor illuminating the Path of Right Relation, a spiritual path that emphasizes opening ourselves with compassion and selflessness. Paired with the practical guide that pulls teachings from Yasodhara's story that are relevant to our modern lives, Surry and Shem offer mindful practices, meditations, and reflections to help cultivate relational
paths with family, friends, and communities.
For Buddhist and non-Buddhist alike, this audiobook is for anyone seeking a guide to create more loving and authentic relationships-a way to find joy and peace together.
