Stories from the Buddha's Life
Path of Compassion tells the fascinating life story of Prince Siddhartha, who left his family and renounced his carefully guarded life, and after many years of spiritual seeking became the Buddha, the Enlightened One. Thich Nhat Hanh shows the Buddha as a person who deals with the same life issues as we do. More than the description of the Buddha’s life story, it serves as an enjoyable, compelling, and informative introduction to Buddhism by conveying its most important teachings.
It is a collection of key stories from Thich Nhat Hanh’s classic Old Path White Clouds, a book celebrating its 20th publishing anniversary this year. Written in language accessible to readers of all ages and levels of experience Thich Nhat Hanh combines the description of the major life stages of the Buddha with his most important teachings.
Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh is a global spiritual leader, poet and peace activist, revered around the world for his pioneering teachings on mindfulness, global ethics and peace.
