Bodh Gaya Its significance in the 21st Century

£8.99

Product description

Buddhism's deepest roots are in Bodh Gaya, where over 2,500 years ago, under a Bodhi tree, Siddhartha woke up from the sleep of endless rounds of birth and death and became the Buddha. Pilgrims from all over the world are still drawn to this place by the power of the Buddha's Enlightenment. Nowhere else and at no point in history have all the Buddhist traditions lived and practised together as they do in Bodh Gaya in the 21st century, a diverse world of Buddhist cultures unified by the Buddha's tangible presence. This book will take you on a journey, to help you feel for yourself the magic of this truly significant place, to catch a glimpse of its deep mystery. As well as telling his own story and interviewing some of Bodh Gaya's interesting characters, Nissoka suggests how to make the most of visiting Bodh Gaya, and asks what a Buddhist renaissance in the place where it all began could mean for the future of Buddhism.

Windhorse Publications paperback. There is an oblique crease of the upper corner of the front cove. Apart from this the book is in very good condition with no marks and good binding.
