Life of the Buddha: according to the Pali Canon
This unique biography presents the Buddha’s revolutionary solution for humanity that leads to the end of ill will, craving and delusion. Drawn from the oldest written record, the vivid recollections of his attendant Ananda and other disciples bring us into the presence of “the Awakened One.”
“The excellence of this book has long been acknowledged. Bhikkhu Nanamoli was a translator of taste and discrimination…Anyone reading through this book will acquire and excellent idea of the Buddha’s personality and message.”
