Mirrors of Indian Buddhism

K Krishna Murthy (Author)
Synopsis The spread of the Buddhist religion brought spiritual unity to most parts of Asia. Extending far beyond its origins in India, Buddhism also exerted an artistic influence which was effective in diverse cultures, where it gave rise to the parallel creations in architecture and figural imagery. The study of Indian Buddhism indeed is winsome and alluring. The present book Mirrors of Indian Buddhism admirably discusses such fascinating topic of varied interests reflecting the indefatigable research and immaculate scholarship of the author. The author splendidly examplifies the historical visage of Buddhism and with his wonted scholarship and sensitivity has analysed the topics, like iconography of the buddha, his various styles of representations, etc. The penetrating exemplification on the subjects of Buddhist Sangha monasteries, teachers, ideologies, etc., throws ample light on the vicissitudes of Buddhism. The author meticulously bring out the amazing and astounding Buddhist contributions to Indian culture rendering the book authentic and thought provoking.
