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.

"The Buddha Book" is electric with inspirations and revelations potent with the abilities to enliven any truth seekers quest. It amazes me that I got this wonderful book on a discount table at a Barnes and Noble store. This book is a blessing, indeed. I never can get enough of this venerable book.

If you truly love spiritual books, just a peek through "The Buddha Book" will convince you its worth having. You'll likely buy it no matter the cost. I dare you to open one. I'm waiting anxiously to see your review. Sincerely, Shadeed R. Ahmad (6-12-11)
I picked this book up on the discount table and was immediately drawn to the cover of the book never dreaming of the valuable contents. This book is filled with the teaching of Buddha and the illustrations are beyond belief. I have been drawn to the Buddhist philosophy of love and dealing with life. This has been a pleasant read. It truly could be a textbook, it is so informative and the illustrations are awesome. I have found so many rewarding readings on "Buddhas blessings, prayers, and rituals to grant you love, wisdom, and healing." This is not the type book that pick up and read cover to cover, but look at daily for inspiration.
