A fascinating and illuminating ’visual biography’ of one of the greatest spiritual teachers from India –’the buddha’ contains a selection of writings from Buddhist scriptures and ancient texts. Tom Morgan, editor of the widely acclaimed book on the Dalai Lama - counterpoises them with excerpts from literary classics like Herman Hesse’s Siddhartha, scholarly accounts by Buddhist monks, and an extract from a sensational interview with William Parker, a death-row prisoner’s conversion to Buddhism as he awaits his sentence of execution at the Arkansas Prison System. The book also contains a brilliantly written essay that separates the grain from the chaff surrounding the Buddha’s ’enlightenment’ by Karen Armstrong, a well-known religious scholar. Plus an intensely personal experience of a 20-year old young american boy’s encounter, in a narrow dusty lane, with the Buddha. This brilliant ’visual biography’ is embellished with absolutely gorgeous photographs of the art and architecture inspired by Buddhism – the world over. Exquisitely photographed by Glen Alison and lavishly presented in this authoritative book on the Buddha. By special arrangement with New World Library. Printed Pages: 144.
