Overview
The thrilling story of one of the most inspiring figures in human historya a young prince who sacrificed wealth and power for self-knowledge and enlightenment: Gautama Buddha.
More than twenty-five hundred years ago, an Indian prince achieved enlightenment and became the aAwakened One.a Yet, however extraordinary Prince Siddhartha Gautama was, he was no divinity but a self-perfected human being who brought a sweeping message to mankind.
Walter Henry Nelson, a respected historical scholar and author, offers readers a distinctly accessible and authoritative biography of the Buddha and his teachings. In this essential, gripping, and inspiring introduction for the general reader, Buddha explores ancient legends surrounding Buddhismas founder. It shows how the simple story and profound struggle of Prince Siddhartha, who died nearly five hundred years before the birth of Christ, were transformed into one of the worldas great religions.
From tales of Gautamaas struggle to parables of the intervention of gods in his journey, Nelson takes readers through the historical life and ideals at the heart of a religion and philosophy that searches beyond materialism for the true aim of life.
