Description:

From the jacket of the Rusconi edition, 1984

Who and what is Buddha? Maybe a god; a Brahman, or just a man. Carlo Coccioli answers these and many more questions, offering us his interpretation of a human life-story, that of Buddha Sakiamuni within the rich frame of Hinduism, without which Buddhism cannot be understood. Buddha lived around 500 B.C. The central core of his thought is that reality is continuously becoming in an endless stream without getting lost in absolute nothingness: nothing exist except vacuity: everything is illusion. Man, therefore, has only to look for two things: “compassion” and “universal benevolence”, an offspring of the previous. In the first the individual, thanks to the heart’s or of the mind’s imagination, plunges into the universal suffering, making the pain of all the other beings his own so as to render it harmless. With the second, man tends to reach perfection: it is applied so that the established order of things is respected by doing the maximum possible good in all creatures.
The volume is a document rich of history and ethnic elements that Carlo Coccioli has re-elaborated through his deep Orientalist knowledge , the passion for philosophy of religions and the high literary talent, aided by the practice of various living or dead languages. The reader is guided, in a new way, along a live, throbbing, scrupulous journey.
