Description

About the book:

What is wisdom? Actually, nobody really knows. ' Wisdom is not a thing ; it is a whole array of better-than-ordinary ways of being, living, and dealing with the world'. But what is it that makes the difference between better and ordinary? wisdom is the 'ability to judge correctly and to follow the best course of action, based on knowledge and understanding'. In his Gospel, John tells of the death of Lazarus: how his sisters grieved, how the crowd gathered from Jerusalem,and then how Jesus arrived four days later and summoned Lazarus from the tomb and resurrected him. The resurrection of a man is an extremely rare phenomenon in human history. All other living being die once and for all. Even Lazarus died again sometime afterwards. according to Author A woman rushed to the Buddha carrying her dead child in her arms. The Awakened One did not bring the child back to life. " Go to the village and back a handful of rice from a house where no one has ever died" he told her. Of course she could not find such a house. Yet her failure meant that she, and ourselves as readers, could develop some lucidity and a little wisdom : life is impermanent; death inevitably curtails it everyone is bound to lose a loved one through death. Using tales, stories, legends and fables chosen from different spiritual horizons, from the biographies of sage (at times slightly modified, as has always been the case) and from accounts inspired by observations and experience, in this book we will try to invoke, without any certainty of having grasped it, this somewhat rare human quality of wisdom.
