Audible Editor Reviews

The Buddha's life journey laid the foundations for his philosophy of Buddhism, and this primer from Bates College Professor of Religious Studies John S. Strong provides listeners with a thorough overview of his existence. Narrator Andrea Powell's smooth and confident delivery makes this audiobook a pleasure to listen to, and audiences will enjoy her calm manner as she discusses the Buddha's life story, quest, enlightenment, the practice of perfections, fasting, and more. Concise and engrossing, this account of the great sage's life is excellent listening for anyone yearning for a greater understanding of Buddhist philosophy.

Publisher's Summary

Today the Buddha is honoured throughout the world as one of the great religious figures in the history of humankind. In this authoritative biography, John Strong presents the story of Siddhartha Gautama 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.
