Publisher Comments:

The spiritual master who awakened millions.

Siddhartha Gautama lived a life of ease until age 30, when he gave himself over to years of contemplation and self-denial, reaching a state of enlightenment while sitting under a tree. Known as Buddha, he became one of the most powerful spiritual teachers in history. In this fascinating guide, you will discover the story of Gautam‛s incredible life—and how he became an important role model. This book also explores how he came upon the Four Noble Truths and began to prescribe the Eight-Fold Path.
