Description About the author Contents
Why does Buddhism refer to so many Buddhas? Who are they? What can they tell us about ourselves?

In this inspiringly written book we meet the historical and archetypal Buddhas who form part of the rich symbolism of Tibetan Buddhism. This is an informative guide for those new to Buddhism and a handy reference for more experienced practitioners. Vessantara, with his 35 years of meditation experience, combines the power of story telling with practical guidance and succeeds in bringing the Buddhas and their visualization practices to life.

As Buddhists over the centuries meditated on the archetypal Buddha, more and more forms appeared. They sprang up profusely, like wild flowers, in different shapes and colours. They evolved. New varieties were discovered. Eventually the Buddhist tradition was decorated with a riot of colour and beauty.
