This week Windhorse Publications are giving away A Guide to the Buddhas by Vessantara, which is an essential addition to your virtual collection of Dharma books.
Why does Buddhism refer to so many Buddhas? Who are they, and what can they tell us about ourselves? In this inspiring book we meet the Buddhas who form part of the rich symbolism of Tibetan Buddhism. Vessantara combines the power of storytelling with practical guidance and succeeds in bringing to life six Buddhas and their visualization practices (the historical Buddha Śakyamuni and the archetypal Buddhas of the Five Buddha Mandala: Aksobhya, Ratnasambhava, Amitābha, Amogasiddhi and Vairocana). This is an informative guide for those new to Buddhism and a handy reference for more experienced practitioners.
