"This interdisciplinary study on the development of Buddhist art and architecture in China from the early period till the Qing Dynasty is in a 8 11 format with 50 photo illustrations, the majority of which have never been shown or introduced to the Western world. This book has been organized so that a brief biography of Prince Gautama (later the Buddha), is first presented, followed by an explanation of the Four Noble Beliefs, and the Eightfold Path which a Buddhist must follow to reach the enlightenment, and finally the Nirvana."
