Read full description of the books The Four Encounters:It is fun, no point denying that. It is also far away from any Buddha narrative I am familiar with. This is an imaginative series filled with characters and events almost wholly invented, but that is not to say that it has no connection to the original -- Tezuka is a creative spirit at play here and he takes the most tenuous connections and spins wild yarns around them.
In the spirit of the Buddhist narrative tradition, it is the ideas that predominate; and the events are twisted, modified, deleted or reinvented to serve a few core messages that each book in this series conveys.
It is not deep, philosophical or witty, but it holds your attention and gives the faintest sense of the profound. Tezuka also puts in some stupidly funny elements in, as when a trickster-sadhu starts singing India's current national anthem (composed centuries later) casually, as if it was a magic incantation to set in motion a series of events.
In addition the artwork is always there to make sure that the book constantly surprises you even as you read extremely familiar tales.
Read information about the authorFrom Wikipedia:
Dr. Osamu Tezuka (手塚治虫) was a Japanese manga artist, animator, producer and medical doctor, although he never practiced medicine. Born in Osaka Prefecture, he is best known as the creator of Astro Boy and Kimba the White Lion. He is often credited as the "Father of Anime", and is often considered the Japanese equivalent to Walt Disney, who served as a major inspiration during his formative years. His prolific output, pioneering techniques, and innovative redefinitions of genres earned him such titles as "the father of manga" and "the God of Manga."
