BUDDHISM
Description
About the Book:

Somewhere in the territorial tangle involving present day Bihar, Uttar Pradesh and Nepal - more than two thousand years ago, took place a prophetic, decisive birth; the birth of 'the Buddha'. Prince, wanderer, a questioning spirit to the point of inconsolable companion - the Buddha, the Sakyamumi, Gautam, Siddharth, or whatever other name the world will tag on to him - was at the very least, an 'enlightened' man but more than that there is no god. The teaching, its manifest discourse, its ethics, legends and artistic representation recognise in all this and beyond, the civilizational presence of an object of faith, practise and preaching: Buddhism.

This book fluently divides itself into the personal story of the Buddha, the import of Buddhist philosophy, the series of orders, their practices, Buddhism's spread beyond India, intertwined with an attractive packaging - and unpacking - of Buddhist art through the ages. As a special focus, the story of the institution of Dalai Lama is the obvious highlight gilding the textual framework; making it further easy on the eye and the reader's sensibility are the archival, illustrative, wonderful pictures full of wonder.

Fotis, Greece
I've just received the shawl and love it already!! Thank you so much,
Ina, Germany
The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
