Buddha by Jon Ortner

Welcome Books,

This sumptuous volume combines excerpts from the Dhammapada (sayings of the Buddha) with 175 color images by veteran photojournalist Ortner to present a visual record of the impact the Illumined One has had over the past 2,500 years on much of the world. The photos depict devotional artifacts (statues, temples, stupas, and so on); some include followers of the eightfold path. In every image, the Buddha’s pacific presence is palpable.
