The Unfortunate Idol Fo: The Story of a Forgotten Buddha || Fairbank Center
2012 Edwin O. Reischauer Lectures In his account of his travels in service to the Emperor of China Kublai Khan, Marco Polo provides a version of the life of the Buddha, a version that is remarkably sympathetic, noting the Buddha's saintly character.

Introduction

Children are subject to many forms of adversity, for example, poverty or ill health. However, a significant form of adversity experienced by children in many different regions of the world is violence. The form of violence against children varies widely and is hugely disparate.

Among the evidence in support of this hypothesis is the observation that tribal people all over the world take wild anim

1.2.1 Death and Tolstoy

Inevitably, the way in which people deal with death, whether by denial or by the construction of a complex system of beliefs and myths, leads to questions about the meaning of life. For Julia Neuberger this is the lesson of death. ‘It is nothing to fear of itself, but it concentrates the mind powerfully in examining what it is we mean by life’ (Neuberger and White, 1991, p. 13).
