Buddha Vol 5: Deer Park
by Tezuka, Osamu
About This Book
Osamu Tezuka (1928-1989), the godfather of Japanese graphic art, brings ancient India to life, lavishly retelling the life and times of the Enlightened One, in his critically acclaimed eight-book masterpiece, Buddha. The fates of real and imagined characters are deftly interwoven as they engage in fresh and unexpected adventures, playing out Tezuka's philosophical concern with overcoming fate and the uselessness of violence.
In volume 5, Buddha must confront Devadatta's ruthless ambition, soothe Tatta's thirst for revenge and even reach out to the stubborn monk Dhepa. But forgiving the Kingdom of Kosala for the devastation wreaked upon his homeland could prove to be Buddha's greatest challenge yet.
