Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Vivid color photographs and clearly written text explain the basic beliefs and customs of the Buddhist religion. Buddha was a prince of Nepal and had everything he might want, but when he saw unhappy and suffering people, he gave up his rich life to seek knowledge. He discovered that the way to end unhappiness was to follow an eightfold path. People who follow the teachings of Buddha learn about them in temples. Inside this building is a shrine and a rupa or image of the man whose name means enlightened one or the one who knows. Buddha felt that everyone should have metta, loving kindness or peace within them. Buddhists often meditate to help their minds become clear and bright. As one of six books in the "Places of Worship" series, the source would be an ideal way to begin a study of different religions. In addition to a glossary and index, each voume contains additional book, video, and web site sources. 2000 (orig. 1998), Gareth Stevens/Franklin Watts, Ages 6 to 10, $21.27. Reviewer: Laura Hummel
