Buddha and the Chocolate Box is the 6th album by Yusuf / Cat Stevens.

The title came to him whilst travelling to a gig on a plane. With a Buddha in one hand and a box of chocolates in the other, he pondered that if he were to die in the plane these would be the last objects with him. He would be caught between the spiritual world and the material world. The album leans towards the spiritual path – and is an indication of the direction his life would follow.

He also drew the illustrations on the back cover of the album.
