9780007942480: BUDDHA (Box Set) Volumes 1 - 8 by OSAMU TEZUKA, published by Harper Collins Publishers INDIA Ltd. 2014

Published by Harper Collins Publishers INDIA Ltd. 2014 The classic eight volume graphic novel series from the godfather of the genre - an irreverent and humourous rendition of the life and times of Buddha is now available in Box Set. Description About the Book:- Originated in the 1970s, Buddha is Osamu Tezuka's unparalleled rendition of the life and times of Prince Siddhartha. Tezuka's storytelling genius and consummate skill at visual expression blossom fully as he contextualizes the Buddha's ideas, with an emphasis on action, emotion, humour and conflict as Prince Siddhartha runs away from home, travels across India and questions Hindu practices such as ascetic self-mutilation and caste oppression. Rather than recommend resignation and impassivity, Tezuka's Buddha predicates enlightenment upon recognizing the interconnectedness of life, having compassion for the suffering, and ordering one's life sensibly. Furthermore, his approach is slightly irreverent in that it incorporates something that Western commentators often eschew, namely, humour. Contents:- The Box Set includes Buddha Vol 1Kapilvastu Buddha Vol 2The Four Encounters Buddha Vol 3Devadatta Buddha Vol 4The Forest of Uruvela Buddha Vol 5Deer Park Buddha Vol 6Ananda Buddha Vol 7Prince Ajatasattu Buddha Vol 8Jetavana About the Author:- Osamu Tezuka (1928-89) is the godfather of Japanese graphic novels. A genuine intellectual, deeply familiar with Western culture from the Bible to Goethe to Hollywood, Tezuka originally intended to become a doctor and received an M.D. Though many have followed his example, it is still Tezuka who draws the deepest awe with his sweeping vision, deftly intertwined plots, persuasive characters, feel for the workings of power, and above all, an indefatigable commitment to human dignity and the sanctity of life.
