Osamu Tezuka, the godfather of Japanese graphic art, brings ancient India to life, lavishly retelling the life and times of the enlightened one in his critically acclaimed eight-book masterpiece - BUDDHA. The fates of real and imagined characters are deftly interwoven as they engage in fresh and unexpected adventures, playing out Tezukas philosophical concern with overcoming fate and the uselessness of violence. In book two, THE FOUR ENCOUNTERS, Prince Siddhartha fated to become the Buddha is confronted by the harsh penalties of social injustice within his own kingdom, fuelled by selfish warlords and villians like the depraved warrior, Bandaka. The tragic fortunes of his loved ones, such as Tatta the rogue and Migaila the fierce female bandit, force the Prince to choose between love and destiny, Siddhartha must forsake his heart and begin his pilgrimage.
