A Beautifully presented book,
This review is from: Meeting the Buddhas: Our Closest Friends and Helpers (Board book)
A light and airey book with beautiful images including many of the most common and well known and loved Buddha's, Tara, Amitayus, Avalokiteshvara, Vajrapani, Buddha Shakyamuni (of course), Manjushri and more... Each Buddha has their own two pages which include a gorgeous photo or thangka image, their mantra and a brief story and description to illustrate the special function of each one.
Its a book for Adults and children because to browse I find it is very relaxing and energising. In general I find that a lovely way to generate a peaceful and positive mind when tired or busy or too disturbed for more formal practice, is to simply spend a few moments enjoying looking at the beautiful form of a Buddha; this book is ideal for such enjoyable and beneficial gazing.
Also great if you are new to Buddhism and are trying to get familliar with the faces that belong to the many new names you are no doubt reading about!
