Description

Tow thousand six hundred years ago, a lonely monk wandered the dusty pathways of northern India seeking answers to one eternal question-what is the cause of human sorrow and suffering?

Siddhartha Gautama, a prince who chose to go on a difficult spiritual quest evolved a subtle, perceptive and original philosophy that has stood the test of time. He became the Buddha, the Enlightened One, whose compassionate teachings have spread across the world and continue to provide guidance and solace to millions.

In this book, read about the life and teachings of the Buddha. Then visit Bodh Gaya where he gained enlightenment, Sarnath where he gave his first sermon and Kushinagar, where he gained the final liberation of parinirvana. Also the places sanctified by his presence-Lumbini, Kapilavastu, Rajgriha, Vaishali and Sravasti also famous centres of Buddhist learning like Nalanda, Sanchi and Ajanta.

Walk along the path of the Buddha on an unforgettable pilgrimage to knowledge, enlightenment and peace.
