Description

We don't even know his real name, only the appellative by which he was designated: Buddha, "the awakened one". At the centre of this research, conducted by great expert on Buddhism and Oriental religions, Giuseppe Tucci, is the mystery surrounding the life of Buddha, his fame and the achievements of his acolytes. The work here presented contains Sanskrit, Chinese and Tibetan texts, each with a summary, introduction, captions and other key tools in English. It reveals the depth and humanity of a philosophy and practice central still now all over the world, and whose origins are lost in the mists of time.Reprint of the 1978 Motilal Banarsidass edition.show more
