Over 2500 years ago there lived a man who did not claim to be specially gifted, divinely inspired or chosen, yet whose teachings now attracts an ever-increasing number of followers from all wlks of life. Serious, but never solemn, the Buddha's way seeks a realization of how the mind limits and isolates itself. Through study, discipline and meditation, such understanding can transcend the suffering, ego-bound self and foster wisdom and compassion, positivity and unfettered joy. Buddhist culture has spread, diversified and developed, from ancient India to modern America. This volume displays the rich global array of art and architecture, ritual and symbol, festivals and people that reflects a religion of great beauty and profound practical insight. Alistair Shearer explains how the timeless wisdom of the Buddha offers the West a means by which it can rediscover its own sense of spirituality.
With 116 illustrations.
