Introducing Buddha: A Graphic Guide

by Jane Hope, illustrated by Borin Van Loon - £7.99  Icon Books Ltd (2008)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781848310117 | ISBN 10: 1848310110

Meditation, Karma, Zen, Tantric and Nirvana are some of the many Buddhist ideas Westerners hear of frequently, even if their meaning has been lost in translation. This vast and complex non-theistic religion is woven into the fabric of Asian civilizations, from India to the Himalayan regions, China, Vietnam, Japan and elsewhere. What is Buddhism really about?
 
Introducing Buddha describes the life and teachings of the Buddha, but it also shows that enlightenment is a matter of experiencing the truth individually, and by inspiration which is passed from teacher to student. Superbly illustrated by Borin Van Loon, the book illuminates this process through a rich legacy of stories, explains the practices of meditation, Taoism and Zen, and goes on to describe the role of Buddhism in modern Asia and tis growing influence on Western thought.
