Description

This book, with over 200 specially commissioned photographs, easy-to-follow sketch maps of the sacred Sites and a map of the region, attempts to comprehensively illustrate every aspect of Buddhism, its architectural heritage, its literary wealth and above all, its humane philosophy, with prime focus on the Sacred Sites associated with the Lord Buddha during his lifetime.

Through the remains of monasteries and gardens, through the dusty plains to the Himalayan foothills, treading the sites sanctified long ago by the Buddha’s footsteps, in an eternal quest to unravel the complex truths of life, lucidly and brilliantly enunciated by the Buddha twenty five centuries ago.

The first genuine attempt to present the sacred sites as a traditional pilgrim circuit, following a time-honoured trail with a hallowed history dating back two and a half millennia. An illustrated exploration of information ranging from ancient legends from the Buddha’s life to practical information on the Sacred Sites. From the wisdom of the Master’s teachings to an exclusive interview with His Holiness the XIVth Dalai Lama. This book, with over 200 specially commissioned photographs, easy-to-follows sketch maps of the sacred Sites and a map of the region, attempts to comprehensively idllustrate every aspect of Buddhism, its architectural heritage, its literary wealth and above all, its humane philosophy, with prime focus on the Sacred Sites associated with the Lord Buddha during his lifetime.
