The Life of the Buddha: According to the Pali Canon


By Bhikkhu Nanomoli

Composed entirely of texts from the Pali canon, this unique biography presents the oldest authentic record of the Buddha s 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 Buddha s presence, where his example offers profound inspiration and guidance on the path to freedom.
