Kapilavastu (Volume - 1) (Paperback) Price: Rs.327

The story is a retelling of the life of the young prince, as he runs away from the luxuries of the castle and shuns Hindu practices such as ascetic self-mutilation and caste system. The story takes a different take on the path that leads Gautama to his enlightenment as opposed to resignation and impassivity, Buddha as portrayed by the author uses wit and humor to look at the situations around him and leads the understanding of how ordering one's life sensibly can solve a number of problems faced in life. The first volume of Buddha: Kapilavastu (Volume - 1) deals with three different characters. Chapra is an ambitious slave who decides to give his caste system a miss and rise above it. The second is Tatta, a wild pariah child who can communicate with animals. Then there is the monk, Naradatta, who attempts to read and understand the various signs that surround the birth of prince Siddhartha.

Osamu Tezuka was a Japanese manga artist and cartoonist, who is often considered to be the Japanese equivalent of Walt Disney owing to his contribution in the field of Japanese Anime. Some of his well known works are Metropolis, Jungle Taitei (Jungle Emperor), and Tetsuwan ATOM (Astro Boy).

Engrossing. Unputdownable

My first Manga experience. Simply loved the book. Was reading while travelling is crowded delhi metro train. Somehow I left the world behind to lose into the manga version of thousands of years old lore about Buddha's birth. I was so engrossed that I almost forgot getting down at my destination. After, finishing the novel I felt so incomplete, the curiosity to read the second is killing me.

Beautifully written.

I bought all the 8 parts of Osamu Tezuka's Buddha from flipkart. Got really good quality books, for a really cheap price.

This series tells the story of the Buddha in 8 volumes. I couldn't put this down, until I finished all the volumes. The books make you cry, smile, and sometimes it even makes you laugh out loud.
