This books provides a rough chronological description of the Buddha's life and teaching based on the Pali canon, the oldest and most complete systematic treatment of classical Buddhism.
It contains numerous autobiographic accounts from the Buddha himself from his birth to a very full account of his final passing away.
The book is a celebration of the clarity, versatility and depth of the Buddha shorn of a great deal of elaboration which appeared in later texts.
In part the book is like a play with the translator Nanamoli, being an excellent one at that - providing a first voice, introducing the reader to a location and time in ancient India into which the narrative breaks through.
A very pithy digest of an enormous compendium. This book constitutes a comprehensive treasure.
