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. Rising from the shade of the Pippla tree, Buddha must spread the word of Brahma to his fellows, be they human or animal. He will confront Devadattas ruthless ambition, soothe Tattas thirst for revenge and will even reach out to the stubborn monk Dhepa. But forgiving the kingdom of Kosala for the devastation wreaked upon his homeland could prove to be Buddhas greatest challenge yet.
