Similes of the Buddha

By: Hellmuth Hecker

This book is an introductory guide to the rich, wonderful, and profound world of Buddhist similes. The Buddha used many similes as a skilful means to facilitate the understanding of teachings that otherwise could appear overly abstruse and dry to his listeners. Thus, contemplation of the similes and the explanations as given in this book will widen and deepen one’s understanding of the Teaching of the Buddha.

Dr. Hellmuth Hecker is a well known German writer on Buddhism. His many works include a partial German translation of the Saṃyutta Nikāya, essays on the main disciples of the Buddha (published in Great Disciples of the Buddha), works dealing with various aspects of the Buddha’s teaching, as well as works on the history of Buddhism in Germany.
