Hidden Buddhas

$ 5.00

Good condition, three stains on the top of the book.

Hidden Buddhas is an enthralling book about Japan's hidden Buddhas that are tucked away except on rare viewing days.

It's the job of one Buddhist priest to protect the statues, but he struggles with his inherited orthodoxy. Another Buddhist rebels against the orthodoxy, while an American grad student studying Buddhism falls in love with a beautiful Japanese artist haunted by an aborted child. The book traces these characters through the late 20 century to the present and turns a cosmopolitan eye on religion, fashion, and modern life.
