Buddha : A Story of Enlightenment
Buddha is synonymous with the term 'enlightenment'. Although we see him as a calm, benevolent figure, the actual life story of Buddha was tumultuous and dramatic. No other human being has lived such a life. What better way to grip the reader than to tell Buddha's story from the inside? Chopra carries the reader from Buddha's birth to the time of enlightenment - how he experienced such depths of despair and heights of ecstasy, renounced love in favour of spiritual perfection, and contained in one body enough wisdom to change the world.
