This is the story of Sumedha—the soul of Gautama one with the soul of humanity. In it, the Blessed One reveals his experiences in the mastery of the Ten Perfections of the Law during many lifetimes prior to his final incarnation, when he answered the call of the Ancient of Days to be the Buddha.
We all have the seed or “essence” of Buddha within us. Because we do, we have the potential to become a Buddha. Here, Elizabeth Clare Prophet gently traces upon the heart the pathway that can lead to Buddhahood. She helps us relate to the different stages and also see them as steps that we can accomplish in our daily lives.
