  • Description

    This book records the fascinating life of the Buddha and speaks of his teachings.

    Summary of the Book

    Gautama Buddha’s ideas and beliefs went against what people had believed in for centuries. He did not believe in the idea of a supreme God who could rescue humanity from sorrows and difficulties. He only taught people that nirvana could be found within each person and that it can be achieved if we chose to follow the right path. He has been one of the most influential people, but nobody knows much about the life of Siddhartha Gautama. The Buddha’s teachings have been followed for more than 1500 years in India and have guided many people from all walks of life. Buddhism is a religion that has been formed from his teachings and has gained popularity by people from all over the world. This book is an account of his life from when he was a prince to when he left home to attain nirvana. It also tells us the story of the lives of the people and kingdoms in ancient India.

    Easy and Complete

    The book is an easy read that can be followed by any child above 12 years. I bought it to read it myself, and found it refreshing and succinct. The book gives a simple and clear picture of the Buddha's life and times. It brings alive the atmosphere, the issues of the day and Siddhartha's motivations in a lucid style.

    He is shown to be human, yet his thought leadership shines through the narrative. The book goes beyond the religion and puts his life in context and perspective.

    A very access...

    Best in the market!

    It's a good book, but it does not have teachings of Lord Buddha and stories of his teachings, it is having details about his life.
