Content

A blue moon has appeared, threatening an ancient way of life, forcing the custodians of paradise to confront nature’s greatest nemesis, humanity. A fantastical tale, rich in history and myth. Meet Padma, an unlikely champion of hope, and George, a man tormented by the cruel deeds of his past. Carried from ancient days to distant constellations, a captivating and extraordinary journey unfolds in pursuit of a destiny they must claim. Beginning in Ceylon in the 1830’s, ‘Padma and the Elephant Sutra’ follows their epic struggle to fulfil an ancient covenant, agreed in a time beyond recollection, to save a fragile world. The price of success will be great, but the cost of failure, unimaginable.
