Life of the Buddha : According To the Pali Canon ((Rev)92 Edition)by Bhikkhu (translator) Nanamoli
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
Composed entirely of texts from the Pali canon, this unique biography presents the oldest authentic record of the Buddhas life and revolutionary philosophy. The ancient texts are rendered here in a language marked by lucidity and dignity, and a framework of narrators and voices connect the canonical texts. Vivid recollections of his personal attendant Ananda and other disciples bring the reader into the Buddhas presence, where his example offers profound inspiration and guidance on the path to freedom.
