Gautama Buddha Very informative especially for one who is not familiar with the character of buddha focuses on the historical as far as possible and less on the teachings and holiness felt good to know about the person gautama and not only the buddha Enjoyable tries to remain factual gets kinda repetitive at some parts but nevertheless a great reading if you want to understand a few things about the life of the buddha Detailed information on life of BuddhaI was looking for a book on Buddha that is not anyone's interpretation of his teachings but one which stated his origins teachings and facts as they are And this book was exactly that Loved it a good book for beginners about the life of Gautama Buddha uite informative but repetitive though a good book Good onean evidence based summary of life history of Buddha many historical facts uncovered a brief chapter of his teachings should be included The life and times of Siddhartha Gautama the BuddhaGautama's ideas went against the established beliefs of centuries His teachigs did not rely on the idea of a Supreme God or gods who could rescue humanity from its sorrows; instead he believed that nirvana lay withi each person and could be achieved by following the right pathEven though he was one of the most influential men who ever walked the earth very little is known about the life of Siddhartha Gautama the man we call the Buddha His teachings were followed for 1500 years in India and became the guiding principles of life for both rich and poor high born and low caste Today the religion he founded is follwed all over the worldHere is the fascinating story of his life from his youth as a privileged prince to his renunciation of the world and attainament or nirvana; how his teachings changed all those who came in contact with him; and the tumultous lives of people and kingdoms in ancient India The information has been shared in bits and pieces Overall the hard work by writer in gathering the data is appreciable Fast pleasant and easy reading a good introduction to Buddhism religion and Buddha in general It was a pleasure for me The series of books published as Puffin Lives are truly wonderful I think that they are meant for readers above 10 years but I derive immense pleasure reading them Gautama Buddha The Lord of Wisdom by Rohini Chowdhury narrates the life of one of the most influential personalities in human history I have not read much of Gautama Buddha although my want to read list has a few I perhaps know about Buddha as much as is taught in the history courses in schools which is abysmal anyways For me this book was a fresh starting pointRohini Chowdhury brings to life whatever little is known about Gautama Buddha's life not his teachings in a simple and engaging manner I haven't spent any time trying to understand the teachings of the great man I am really appalled that I was so ignorant of the highlights in the life of this great manI must be grateful for this little book and other books in the series Puffin Lives to take away a tiny part of my ignorance Folks if you have children in your family 10 years this could be a nice gift
