Meditation, Karma, Zen, Tantric, Nirvana - these are some of the many Buddhist ideas that have entered our Western popular idiom, usually inappropriately. What is the truth of Buddhism, its history and variety of practices? This vast and complex non-theistic religion is woven into the fabric of Asian civilizations from India to the Himalayan regions, China, Vietnam, Korea, Japan and elsewhere.
Introducing Buddha describes the life and teachings of the Buddha. Author Jane Hope, who has herself taught Buddhism extensively, 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, and explains the practices of meditation, Taoism and Zen. It goes on to describe the role of Buddhism in the modern Asia and its growing influence on Western thought.
