The Buddhist tradition offers a treasure-house of images that can touch our hearts and minds in deeply satisfying ways. These images represent aspects of what Buddhists call Enlightenment - a state of pure, clear consciousness and understanding that can never adequately be described in words. The ancient symbols of the tradition can guide us towards the truth.Colouring the pictures in this book can become a journey of discovery. As our imagination begins to work, we can see beyond the lines on the page and sense a realm of deeper meaning. Contemplating these images can then help us towards the perfected qualities of generosity, fearlessness, wisdom and compassion that characterize the awakened mind.
