Set in Benares during mythic times, The Silent Prince tells the story of a Boddhisatva who must choose between a terrible karmic burden and the dishonor of disobeying his father. To avoid the decision, he withdraws into a world of complete silence, broken only at the end of the story when he appears in the splendor of his divinity to reveal the truth and to redeem his suffering family and people.
