Synopsis

Buddha and Buddhism by Ruth Nason

The Buddha was born in India 2500 years ago. This book describes his life, who he was and what he did. It explains how he found the 'Middle Way', what he taught his followers, and about the holy books that contain his teaching. There is also information on Buddhist sacred places, festivals, and how the Buddha's work has lasted to the present day. This differentiated (simplified) text edition of GREAT RELIGIOUS LEADERS: THE BUDDHA AND BUDDHISM concentrates on how the Buddha's teaching influences people today and thus makes a great introduction to this important world religion.
