Buddha 7: Prince Ajatasattu

Osamu Tezuka
Osamu Tezuka

Osamu Tezuka, the godfather of Japanese graphic art, brings ancient India to life, lavishly retelling the life and times of 'the enlightened one' in his critically acclaimed eight-book masterpiece: BUDDHA. The fates of real and imagined characters are deftly interwoven as they engage in fresh and unexpected adventures, playing out Tezuka’s philosophical concern with overcoming fate and the uselessness of violence.


In the kingdom of Magadha, young Prince Ajatasattu agonizes over the prophecy that claims he will one day murder his own father. Deciding that the prediction is false, he believes that the Buddha is to blame and must pay for the rift it has caused between father and son.


Meanwhile, the Buddha's closest disciple, Devadatta, is seduced by the political opportunities offered by the discord in Magadha, and urges his master to take full advantage of them.


“A stunning achievement.” Publishers Weekly.

“If you’ve never tried something like this before, check it out; its fascinating stuff. An engrossing read that you’ll get through in no time. And then you’ll want the other seven instalments.” Starburst.
