A compelling reconstruction of the life of the man who became Buddha. Siddhartha Gautama, destined to become the Buddha, it was a historical character that was born in a century of great ferments and in a country where the spiritual search has 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 work, getting information from various literary sources, such as the Buddhist Canon or the Chinese pilgrimsí reports, with an iconographic support of works produced in different times and countries. In the second part it is human feeling of the Buddha that is tried to express, going the same way that one day saw him tireless pilgrim, with a specially commissioned search of modern images, that remembers 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.
