The books of the Sadhana Trilogy
Out of a time of political and religious chaos, Prince Siddhartha will abandon kingdom and family to become a buddha, an awakened one. Three women will affect him profoundly.
The outcaste Mala breaks the slavery’s bonds and finds happiness with a lover and a daughter, Kirsa. When Kirsa is stolen from her, she becomes an outlaw as bloodthirsty as the goddess Kali. In search of her daughter, she has a life-changing encounter with young Prince Siddhartha.
Prince Siddhartha falls in love with Dhara, a warrior’s beautiful and spirited daughter. She falls in love with royal power–and his best friend, the charioteer Chandaka. To prove her love and fidelity to her prince, she must make a great sacrifice.
The outlaw Mala’s daughter Kirsa has loved Siddhartha since karma brought them together as children, but intoxicating Dhara steals his heart. Abandoned by her one love, Kirsa becomes a famous healer. When a deadly plague strikes her son, only the mysterious man known as the Buddha can help her.
