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. Buddha finally travels home to Kapilavastu to teach and inspire more followers. There, in the beautiful garden of Jetavana, he explains the original parable of the self immolating rabbit and reveals the keystone of his philosophy.
