An Encyclopedia of Buddhist Deities, Demigods, Godlings, Saints and Demons
Beginning with a few aniconic symbols, like foot prints, a throne, the Bo tree or stupas, in the pre-Christian Indian art, Buddhism came to evolve a variety of picturesque representations of a Self-Existent, Super immanent Principle: in myriad forms and emanations that range from the superbly magnificent to sheerly grotesque. Endowed with diverse iconographic attributes, Buddhist deities/saints/demons have grown, over the rolling centuries, into bewildering numbers, legions. Which all, leave alone the neophytes, not even the best of scholars can recognize! The names of the divinities and their cultural/regional perceptions” owing largely to the plurality of Buddhist pantheons, have only gone on to further complicate their identification.
