    Excellent Introduction to the Path of the Buddha

    This book is an excellent introduction to the Buddha. This is the one book which makes you see the Buddha as a person. We get to meet all the great disciples and access all the great teachings on a first person basis. Listening to the words of the teacher in his own voice. In the manner that it was taught. We get to meet a Buddha who is human, we get to meet him getting old, getting aches in the body, playing the flute to a group of young men. In all these points in the book, the poet that is...

    Must buy!

    The book has changed me a lot. Written beautifully and is in very simple language. I usually read it in evening times and it was like a evening tea with Buddha. No other book on Buddha can match this one. At the end I was crying and wanted to read more of it. Experience was divine. Highly recommended!

    Poetic!!

    It is a beautiful book, full of graceful prose and and poetic description. A genuine biography of the Buddha it is a life story inter-weaved with buddhist teachings.
    I would however warn the reader... you need to be calm, peaceful and in compassionate mind to truly enjoy this book. A typical cynical mind of today will not get the underlying peace of the read without at first calming itself.

    A gem of a book

    Thich Nhat Hanh's is one of the best known authors on Buddhism and this book is an example of his exceptionally wonderful writing skills. Once I started reading, I just couldn't keep the book away because it is so engaging and engrossing. There are so many books on this topic and many of them tell the history very well but this book actually takes you through the paths and periods of Buddha. Thai (Thich Nhat Hanh's ) made many of the esoteric teaching simple and easy to understand. The book...

    Buddha in Detail

    A Non Indian Monk (Thich Nhat Hanh) writing in so much detail about all the aspects of Buddha's Life in such a detail is just amazing. If your looking for a complete detailed knowledge about the Buddha, his teachings and his life this is the book for you.
    I guess it's hard to find any other book as detailed and simple as this one.

    HAPPY READING ALL :)

    Simply awesome

    Pleasant read. It's a great book to learn through example and the example being The Buddha himself. It conveys the importance of slowing down, developing a loving heart. It is just beautiful.
    We also get a glimpse of India's past.
    Good read.
