In the 2,500 years since the wandering Indian renunciate Siddhartha Gautama sat under a tree and obtained enlightenment, the religion his teachings engendered has spread throughout all the regions of Asia. Buddhism generally urges a life of kindness, nonviolence, and striving toward transcendental wisdom by such means as mindfulness and meditation. Buddhism’s artistic heritage is also diverse, as this selection from the renowned collection of San Francisco’s Asian Art Museum indicates.

Together, these masterpieces suggest the range and depth of Buddhist art. Pomegranate’s books of postcards contain up to thirty top-quality reproductions bound together in a handy, artful collection. Easy to remove and produced on heavy card stock, these stunning postcards are a delight to the sender and receiver. Postcards are oversized and may require additional postage.
