About this Item

8vo., 399pp., 7 b/w plates, original cloth gilt. A fine clean copy in a fine bright pictorial dustwrapper. For the past two thousand years and more, the figure of Gautama, the Buddha, has attracted hagiographers and legend-makers whose writings have, for the most part, left readers with a sense of dissatisfaction and frustration. At the same time, there has been a flood of arcane scholarship on particular aspects of the Buddha's life, times, and teaching which has left the discriminating reader unmoved. This biography, written with rare elegance, delicacy, and verve will serve as a breath of fresh air. Gautama Buddha by Iqbal Singh views the life of the Buddha in the context of the eventful age in which he lived, keeping in mind the significant connection of the personality of Gautama and his understanding of the nature of human experience and destiny, the deeper problems of our age. A new chapter in this edition evaluates subsequent research and writings on Buddha's life and times, and major development in the Buddhist world. Bookseller Inventory # 3637
