Rotman's research relies totally on tales from the Divyavadana (Divine Stories), the most very important collections of historical Buddhist narratives from India. although discourses of the Buddha are renowned for his or her beginning phrases, "thus have I heard" - for Buddhist teachings have been first preserved and transmitted orally - the Divyavadana offers a really varied version for disseminating the Buddhist dharma. Devotees are enjoined to seem, not only pay attention, and visible legacies and lineages are proven to trump their oral opposite numbers. As Rotman makes transparent, this configuration of the visible essentially transforms the realm of the Buddhist practitioner, altering what one sees, what one believes, and what one does.
