Path of Compassion: stories from the Buddha's life
Path of Compassion is Thich Nhat Hanh's vibrant retelling of the story of Prince Siddartha, who left his family and renounced his privileged life to become the Buddha. These stories reveal that, most of all, the Buddha was a human being, full of questions, able to make mistakes, and like all of us, capable of great compassion and insight. The most important teachings of the Buddha come alive in this compelling and informative introduction to his life.
The key stories selected from Thich Nhat Hanh's previously published book Old Path White Clouds, have been presented in this new edition that offers an enjoyable, and informative introduction to Buddhism. Intended for readers of all ages, Nhat Hanh combines the milestones of the Buddha's life with the most important teachings.
