Overview

Philosophy or religion, way of life or way of being, Buddhism never ceases to intrigue. Its multiple facets bear witness to the diversity of its paths, and its innumerable aspects can disorient the newcomer. The essence however remains, a deep root common to all those searching for knowledge: a man, anchored in a moment of history, awakened to affirm that it is within the power of everyone to attain wisdom.
