Item description for Many Lives by M. R. Kukrit Pramoj, Meredith Borthwick, Marcus Luttrell, Margaret Carr, Gunilla Dahlberg, Paul Collier & Jon Buller...

"That night, the rain poured and wind howled, raindrops crashing like solid objects onto the ground and water. A passenger boat from Ban Phaen to Bangkok, packed with people, pressed on through the current amidst the rising clamor of the rain and storm..." The boat capsizes in the torrent, and washed up on the shore the next morning are the sodden bodies of the many passengers who lost their lives. Thus begins M. R. Kukrit Pramoj's classic novel set in the Thailand of the early 1950s and first published in 1954. The life of each passenger who perished is retraced from birth, revealing a complex web of experiences and emotions.

Reviews - What do customers think about Many Lives?

From a Buddhist view  Oct 10, 2003
I am a Japanese, I consider myself Buddhist. Actually Budhism in Thailand is classified as a sect called Hinayana, which has more fundamental doctorine than Mahayana the sect I belongs to. Anyway, Mom Ratchawong Kurit Pramoj's purpose of this work is explore the mystery of Karma, the sin of Buddhism's philosophy. I am not sure M.R. Kukrit's purpose was successfull. But one thing I can say is that the idea of Karma of taught by M.R. kukrit and the one in Japan is very similar. The conclusion of the story is very simple; everyone in the boat needed to death. But the reason is different by each person and very complicated. Maybe some of western people who are not instruted to know Buddhism would not understand why this person must die. I cannot explain why to them either. If you are borne Buddhist, you will understand. I am so surprised that I had the same sense of value about religion with Thai people.
Classic Thai Story  Dec 9, 2001
M.R. Kukrit Pramoj is a renouned, Thai author famous for several pieces he wrote during his lifetime. The stories in this book gives the reader a feel for Thai culture and values, especially as they relate to Buddhism. It was a very well crafted (and translated) story worth reading, especially if you are interested in learning more about the essence of Thai culture.
