Kindle App. on Samsung Galaxy tab not displaying special characters

I use the Kindle app. on my Samsung Galaxy 7.7 to read ebooks purchased from Amazon. I have just purchased a book about Buddhism, and the text includes lots of special characters, some of which the Kindle app. is not able to display correctly it just substitutes a rectangle shape.

When I view the same book on my computer, using "Kindle for PC", all of the special characters are displayed correctly.

Can anyone tell me if this inability to display the special characters is a deficiency in the Kindle app. or of the Samsung Galaxy tab, and if there is anything I can do about it?

I have checked that the firmware on my tablet is up to date. I have deleted the Kindle app and reinstalled it. I have deleted the book from my tablet and re-downloaded it. None of this makes any difference.
