This is an introduction to the Buddhist faith and its practice worldwide, in over 300 artworks and photographs. This is a fascinating and informative guide to the Buddhist faith, from the life of the Buddha through to modern-day Buddhism. It looks at the different schools of Buddhism around the world and how they have evolved. Special themed features focus on Buddhist art, symbolism and architecture, as well as Buddhist Holy days, festivals and rituals. It examines key themes such as the role of women in Buddhism, the importance of the pagoda, and the suppression of the Buddhist faith. It is beautifully illustrated with more than 300 inspirational photographs of paintings, statues, important historical sites and archaeological finds. This richly illustrated reference introduces and explains Buddhist philosophy and how it is practised worldwide. The book opens by exploring the roots of Buddhism through the Buddha's life and teachings, and then explores the practice of Buddhism today, and how the Buddhist faith is followed and interpretated around the world. There is fascinating information on the different Buddhist schools, such as Theravada, Zen, Pure Land and Nichiren, and of the key masters central to them. Beautifully illustrated in 300 inspiring images, this book is the perfect introduction for those new to Buddhism, and a vital resource for students and scholars alike.
