Ajahn Sujato: White Bones Red Rot Black Snakes
A Buddhist mythology of the feminine

"Enchanting, powerful, horrific, beautiful, wise, deadly, compas­sionate, seductive. Women in Buddhist story and image are all these things and more. She takes the signs of the ancient goddess – the lotus, the sacred grove, the serpent, the sacrifice – and uses them in aston­ishing new ways. Her story is one of suffering and great trials, and through it all an unquenchable longing to be free. This beauti­fully illus­trated work is as layered and subversive as mythology itself. Based directly on authentic Buddhist texts, and informed with insights from psychology and compar­ative mythology, it takes a fresh look at how Buddhist women have been depicted by men and how they have depicted themselves."
