Drawn directly from Pali, Sanskrit, and Chinese sources, the life story of the Buddha is retold by Thich Nhat Hanh in a style that captures the clarity and serenity of the Buddha's life. This is a gift book, a reference book, and an excellent read, destined to become a classic of religious literature.
"This is a truly wondrous book—a biography, a compilation of the Buddha's teachings, a social study of ancient India, a work of comparative religion, an epic tale, and a children's story all in one."—Mountain Record
Masterfully written... to read it is to be absorbed into the equanimity of mindfulness. The very rhythm of the words conveys the impression of peace, while telling a powerful story.—New Age Retailer
