BUDDHISM
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.

About the Author:

I’ve received the package 2 days ago. The painting is as beautiful as I whished! I’m very interesting in history, art and culture of India and I’m studing his civilization; so I’ve visited Rajasthan, Gujarat, Tamil Nadu and Kerala in theese years. I’m a draftwoman , so I like collect works of extraordinary arts and crafts of villages, that must be protected and helped. In a short time I’ll buy some others folk painting, as Madhubani , Kalamkari and – if it’s possible – Phad. In the meanwhile, I’m very happy to have in my home a work of your great artist. Namaste, Namaskara.
