Prince of Dharma: The Illustrated Life of the Buddha


‘An exquisite rendering of the Buddhist story. As if the beauty of the Blessed One could step out of modern India’s best paintings into your hands.’

Jack Kornfield

‘Prince of Dharma is a bold and glorious rendering of the life of the Buddha by author Ranchor Prime, who brings to life the inspired work of award-winning artist B.G. Sharma with a sensitive, immensely readable, and rarely seen biography of the Buddha. From his birth as a prince to his final lesson in achieving nirvana… the combination of Prime’s story and Sharma’s art culminate in the most unique contribution to the canon of Buddhist literature and art that has emerged since the Buddha took birth thousands of years ago.’, Ananda Ashram, Yoga Society of New York

How Prince Siddhartha became the Enlightened One is one of the world’s great stories for all seekers of truth, of whatever faith — stirring, instructive and highly relevant to our times. B G Sharma’s 60 paintings depicting the life of the Buddha add his own Rajasthan cultural heritage to the ancient story of Siddhartha.
