Special themed features focus on Buddhist art, symbolism and architecture, as well as Buddhist Holy days, festivals and rituals. It examines key themes such as the role of women in Buddhism, the importance of the pagoda, and the suppression of the Buddhist faith. It is beautifully illustrated with more than 300 inspirational photographs of paintings, statues, important historical sites and archaeological finds. This richly illustrated reference introduces and explains Buddhist philosophy and how it is practised worldwide. The book opens by exploring the roots of Buddhism through the Buddha's life and teachings, and then explores the practice of Buddhism today, and how the Buddhist faith is followed and interpretated around the world.
