Overview
This antiquarian volume contains 'The Light of Asia or the Great Renunciation', being an account of the life and teaching of Gautama, Prince of India and founder of Buddhism. This book is written in the style of a narrative poem, and describes the life and time of Prince Gautama Siddhartha, who, after attaining enlightenment, became The Buddha. It furnishes insights into his life, personality, and ideas - all in a series of verses, and was first published in London in July 1879. This text will appeal to anyone with an interest in Buddhism and its origins, and would make for a worthy addition to any collection of important and influential literature. This vintage text is being republished now in an affordable, modern edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
