Buddhist Fiction - Tara Born of Tears
« on: August 24, 2015, 11:13:40 am »
I've been a Tibetan Buddhist for about 20 years now. I recently wrote a novel using Buddhist ideology and wanted to let people know about it. It's called Tara Born of Tears by Kelly Mitchell. I also am wondering what people think about the idea of promoting Buddhism through fiction? Does it even make sense?

Anyway, here's the book.

Hi, misterkel.

Yours would not be the first faction book written about Buddhism and Buddhists.  My suggestion would be to stick with it and share the dhamma in a tutorial suitable to yours skills and talents.

What Makes an Elder? :
A head of gray hairs doesn't mean one's an elder. Advanced in years, one's called an old fool.
But one in whom there is truth, restraint, rectitude, gentleness,self-control, he's called an elder, his impurities disgorged, enlightened.
-Dhammpada, 19, translated by Thanissaro Bhikkhu.
