This book is a re-creation of a post I created on GooglePlus many years ago.
The book contains extracts from The Kalama Sutta as well as wonderful images of Buddhist sculptures from Gandhara which was at the cross-roads of the Silk Road.
The sculptures are characterised by Buddhist subject matter, oftentimes adapting Greek and Roman elements. Stylistically, Greco-Buddhist art has the idealistic realism and richness of Hellenistic art, and it is believed to have produced the first representations of Siddhartha Gautama Shakyamuni, the Buddha.
