Following an introduction that relates the colourful story of the Emerald Buddha, this book explores the function of jewels as personal identifiers in Buddhist tradition; Buddhaghosa’s commentary on the Jewel Sutta; the paradox of the Buddha’s bejeweled status; and the connection in early Buddhism between jewels, magnificence, and virtue.
