The Silent Prince tells the story of Prince Temiya, a former incarnation of the Lord Buddha, who must choose between obedience to his father and taking a human life. Unable to decide, he retreats into a silence broken only at the very end of the story, when he is compelled to reveal his identity as the Boddhisatva.
Set in Benares in legendary times, the story weaves a rich, sensuous visual and aural tapestry. There are scenes set in heaven and hell as well as on earth. Gods and goddess appear by magic, angels bring the baby Boddhisatva down from the sky, and spirits from hell haunt Temiya as he remembers his past lives.
