The Giant Turtle 大龜王

Translated by BTTS
Illustrations by Candy, age 9 
Bilingual English & Chinese

One day a child wandered among the mountains and valleys to pick wild flowers. She didn’t know she was walking on a turtle’s back.

A tale of kindness and great compassion: In a past life, the Buddha appeared as a giant turtle who slept so long that a mountain grew on his back, and people built houses and burned fires. Awakened by the pain from the fires, and wanting to cool himself, the turtle began to crawl toward the sea. But upon seeing people living on his back, and not wanting tom hurt them, he slept another thousand years and endured the pain.

這是佛陀述說自己前生的故事之一。有一生佛陀化身為一隻「大龜王」,為了幫助人,無聲無息地忍耐、犧牲。感人肺腑的故事,配以幼童純真的插畫,將佛陀的慈悲表露無遺。
