Beschrijving uitgever

Buddhism is the fifth largest world belief system in the world today, with an estimated 350 million adherents. This richly illustrated reference introduces and explains Buddhist philosophy and how it is followed worldwide.
The book opens by analysing the roots of Buddhism through the Buddha’s life and teachings, and then explores the practice of Buddhism today, and how the Buddhist faith is followed and interpreted around the world. There is fascinating information on the different Buddhist schools, such as Theravada, Zen, Pure Land and Nichiren, and of the key masters central to them.
The book also examines Buddhist architecture with accompanying pictures of important temples and pilgrimage sites. There are also dedicated features on the importance of the pagoda, the significance of the Zen garden, and the role of the Dalai Lama.
Beautifully illustrated with over 300 images of Buddhist paintings, statues and archaeological finds, as well as contemporary images of festivals and ritual, this is the perfect introduction for those new to Buddhism, and a vital resource for students and scholars alike.
The consultant editor, Ian Harris, is Professor of Buddhist Studies at the University of Cumbria and is the author of Cambodian Buddhism and Buddhism Under Pot Pot.
