About Buddha Manga Volume 8

Buddha Volume 8: Jetavana features story and art by Osamu Tezuka.

The Buddha has travelled back to his home in Kapilavastu to summon more followers. He delivers his final sermons in Jetavana, the forest of Buddhist lore where the Buddha is said to have spent the last several years of his life teaching.

The very final sermon he gives is of the parable of the self-immolating rabbit, the very first story told in Tezuka's Buddha series, but with a crucial difference which Buddhists refer to as the middle path. Sacrificing of the self to help others (as in the case of the rabbit), should not necessarily lead to death. All life is sacred.

The Perfect Manga

by -

Buddha is unbelievably good. I love this manga with my whole heart.
There are no flaws with the content of the book.
There is what I think is a mis-translation on pages 21 and 23. It says "I proclaim to all samanna", but on page 23 it says "This says "samanna of venuvana" must follow you, but not all samanna."
This is a blatant inconsistency, or I am misunderstanding it.
Also, the mirrored images. It is hard to understand some of the pages because their structure only works in right to left format. This is what make this masterpiece, an unfortunate 4 stars.
