Buddhism is a faith that commands over 100 million followers throughout the world. Buddha revolutionized the religious ideas of his time to advocate a new way of living. All that is known about him comes from a collection of ancient writings that fuse history, biography and myth. Karen Armstrong distils from these the key events of Buddha's life: his birth as Siddhatta Gotama in the fifth century BC and his abandonment of his wife and son; his attainment of enlightenment under the Banyan tree; his political influence; the divisions among his followers; and his serene death.

Armstrong also introduces the key tenets of Buddhism. In our own age of secular anxiety, she shows that it has profound lessons to teach about selflessness and the simple life.

    Buddha är otroligt läsvärd som introduktion till Buddhismen, som överblick över historiska fakta om Buddha, och som inspiration när man reflekterar över sitt liv! Jag har läst om den flera gånger nu och den börjar bli fullspäckad av anteckningar i marginalerna :)
