Why does Buddhism refer to many Buddhas? Who are they? What do they communicate? In this beautifully written book, meet the historical and archetypal Buddhas that form part of the rich symbolism of Tibetan Buddhism. An in-depth exploration that is accessible and inspiring, containing detailed and beautiful illustrations, A Guide to the Buddhas is an informative primer for those new to Buddhism and a handy reference for experienced practitioners. This is the first of three books examining Buddhist archetypes.

Vessantara, born Tony McMahon in England, is a respected and well-published Buddhist author and teacher who holds a particular love for Tibetan Buddhism.
