Synopsis: Sale edition. A popular re-telling of the life story of the Buddha, this ancient tale offers inspiration and insight to spiritual seekers of all traditions. Formerly published under the title "Awakened One"
"Kohn`s masterful blend of the life and teachings of the Buddha renders this book a valuable guide for those who would follow the path of the Awakened One." Publishers Weekly.
"To enable the modern reader to visualize the Buddha`s life so vividly is already quite an achievement. Doubtless an even greater challenge is to present the teachings themselves as part of the narrative flow. Here, too, the author has suceeded admirably. The principle doctrines are presented in a way that is not only clear and succinct, but that - most importantly - enables the reader to understand them not as abstract doctrine, but as insights which were themselves events in the life of the Buddha." Parabola Magazine.
"A splendid combination of biography and instruction." Library Journal.
