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 Tezuka’s philosophical concern with overcoming fate and the uselessness of violence. As Siddhartha embarks on his journey towards enlightenment, he encounters many influences, some forceful, like the monk Dhepa who believes that purity is only attained through ordeals of the flesh and some inspirational, like the strange young acolyte, Assaji. Meanwhile, Devadatta, the young orphanced sone of Bandaka, is forced along a cruel path. Choosing to reject humanity and compassion, Devadatta’s journey will mould him into Buddha’s greatest adversary.
