The words and example of Gautama (often known by the title, 'Buddha') have affected billions of people. But what do we really know about him? While there is much we cannot say for certain about the historical Gautama, this persuasive new biography provides the fullest and most plausible account yet. Weaving ancient sources and modern understanding into an engaging narrative, Vishvapani Blomfield examines Gautama's words and impact to shed fresh light on his culture, his spiritual search and the experiences and teachings that led his followers, to call him 'The Awakened One'. This book draws on the myths and legends that surround him to illuminate the significance of his life. It traces Gautama's investigations of consciousness, his strikingly original view of life and his development of new forms of religious community and practice. Blomfield's insightful and thought-provoking biography will appeal to anyone interested in history and religion, and in the Buddha as a thinker, spiritual teacher and a seminal cultural figure. Gautama Buddha is a compelling account of one of history's most powerful personalities.

  1. Strålande bok om Buddha
    Anders Sjöberg, 24 februari 2015

    Det här är en ganska unik bok om Buddha, buddhismens grundare och ständiga inspiration. Boken förenar en bred läsning av urkunderna, framför allt från palikanon, som är de äldsta textkällorna för buddhismen och om Buddha, men också från nutida akademiska insikter i både texter och historia. Dessutom visar författaren Vishvapani Blomfield prov på en imponerande inlevelseförmåga och förmåga till egen reflektion över det han möter i texterna.
