The Buddha: A Beginner's Guide

by John Strong
£9.99   paperback  Oneworld Publications (2009)

The Buddha: A Beginner Today the Buddha is honoured throughout the world as one of the great religious figures in the history of humankind. His greatness lies in his teachings, and in the religious community that he founded, but also in his exemplary life story.
 
In this authoritative biography, John Strong presents that story the way Buddhists have told it from accounts of his previous lives, and the story of his birth and upbringing, through to his enlightenment, deathbed deeds, and ongoing presence in the relics that he left behind.
 
Along the way, he explores the roots of key Buddhist beliefs and practices, making this volume not only a useful study of the life of the Buddha, but a helpful introduction to Buddhism as a whole.
