The Life of the Buddha
According to the Pali Canon
from the blurb:
This unique biography presents the Buddha's revolutionary solution for humanity that leads to the end of ill will, craving and delusion. Though born a prince surrounded by luxuries, Gotama Buddha was transformed by realizing that no one escapes unhappiness. He spent the remaider of his life discovering, then imparting, the answer to the great question: "Is there a way out of the cycle of dissatisfaction?"
The vivid recollections of his attendant Ānanda and other disciples, drawn from the oldest written record, bring us into thepresence of "the awakened one." The Life of Buddha not onlyillustrates how to walk on the path to freedom; it offers us profound inspiration and guidance for doing so.
