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. Unfulfilled by the teachings of renowned ascetics, Siddhartha agrees to follow Dhepa into the forest of trials. But the final ordeal of little Assaji proves to be his most poignant lesson. As Siddhartha searches his heart and yearns for his family, the Kosalans discover the true caste of their queen a despised shudra disguised as a noble Kshatriya. For the insult, the Buddhas homeland will pay dearly.
