Description
One of the world's great religious traditions, founded in India thousands of years ago, Buddhism has also become an increasingly potent spiritual force in the Western world. With an ethical code based on compassion and nonviolence, Buddhism offers insights into the human condition, outlines a way of life that comes to terms with suffering, and promises tranquility and fulfillment to its adherents. This book introduces the key themes of Buddhist faith, including spiritual and ethical teachings, art and architecture, the life of the Buddha, and the concepts of karma, meditation, and enlightenment. It is a succinct, accessible survey, compact and easily portable yet beautifully bound and printed, with color photos and reproductions throughout and heavy paper covers.
