Overview

Inspired by the teaching of Lama Kyabje Zopa Rinpoche, The Buddha Book is a beautifully illustrated introduction to the most important well-known Buddhist deities. The book presents their major characteristics, functions, and histories in a clear and concise way and, along with prayers, meditations, and visualizations, it covers special rituals, blessings, and mantras associated with each Buddha.

In the Buddhist tradition there are countless deities. There are embodiments of enlightened wisdom that also represent different aspects of the enlightened mind. Using a particular Buddha to mediate, or work with, on a daily basis can act as a sacred map for the reader, leading us to experience the healing, compassion, and hope they can bring into our lives.

This ground-breaking guide is published with the full support of Lama Kyabje Zopa Rinpoche.
