- The Life and Teachings of the Awakened One
- By: Vishvapani Blomfield
- Narrated by: Jonathan Keeble
- Length: 12 hrs and 10 mins
While many accounts of the Buddha’s life mix legend and history, this compelling new biography discriminates between fact and fiction to reveal Gautama, the remarkable human being behind the myth, and sheds new light on his teachings. Plunging us into the noises, smells and jostling streets of Gautama’s world, Vishvapani Blomfield brings the Buddha to life as a passionate and determined individual - a strikingly modern figure who rejected contemporary beliefs.
Blessed book of peace, love, joy and wisdom.

Awesome book! Must read (or listen to on Audible)
Awesome book! Must read. This book provides a complete new way of looking at Buddha....not as a mystic but as a human being....one of the greatest human beings ever lived on our planet.
