About this title

Synopsis:

Behind the dramatic events in the life of Buddha that have been historically and culturally recorded lies the story of Siddhartha, a man overwhelmed by the tragedy of inevitable and universal human suffering. He set out to find a solution not only for his contemporaries and his civilization, but for all of humanity for eternity. This important two-part volume sheds new light on the life and teachings of this great man. The first section narrates the events in the life of Buddha, lavishly illustrated with spectacular works of art that provide the ideal complement to the meticulously researched text. The second section examines this great man's sentiments and the nucleus of his doctrine. This portion of the book features a unique photographic recreation of the roads traveled by the Enlightened One, accompanied by quotations from traditional Buddhist writings.

Synopsis:

Siddhartha Gautama, destined to become the Buddha, a historical character, born in a century of great ferment and in a country where spiritual searching had been a priority for a long time. The reconstruction of his real profile is not easy, since the popular pity well soon took him, transfiguring the events of his human existence. The salient episodes of the life of the Buddha are introduced in the first part of the book, drawing information from various literary sources, such as the Buddhist Canon or the Chinese pilgrims' reports together with iconographic support from further works produced in different times and countries.The second part explores the human side of the Buddha, as a tireless pilgrim, with a specially commissioned search of modern images, remembering the suffered run of Siddhartha, tragically stricken by a universal pain and determined to find an antidote, not only for the people of his time and his country, but forever and for everybody.
