Accompanying the largest ever display of the British Library’s Buddhist treasures, ‘Buddhism’ follows the key concepts of the exhibition in four main chapters: the life of the historical Buddha, Buddhist philosophy, the spread of Buddhism and Buddhist practice. These chapters are interspersed with short entries explaining the significance of specific items. Astonishing colour and beauty emanate from the scrolls, manuscripts and printed books that are reproduced throughout, while the idea of the ‘Middle Path’ – promoting mindfulness, compassion, tolerance and non-violence – is presented with a renewed relevance for a 21st-century audience.
