Beautiful

by L. M Shakespeare | 31 October 2014
Category: Religion
Synopsis
'Beautiful' refers to a conversation in which the Buddha stated that the study of Buddhism is a search for the beautiful. But this is no ordinary search. The beauty referred to transcends the beauty of form, even when combined with the common knowledge of spiritual beauty. The study of Buddhism both sets fire to the longing for, and prefigures the achievement of this supreme entity. Popular versions of Buddhism are legion, but a classically based modern account in a literary tradition is hard to come by. This book responds to the need of those readers who seek the basic concepts and teachings of the Buddha Shakyamuni in their pure form. It attempts to convey clarity through a refined and intense choice of exact words, rather than the substitution of alternatives.
