Revue de presse

"Kohn's masterful blend of the life and teachings of the Buddha renders this book a valuable guide for those who would follow the path of the Awakened One."— Publishers Weekly

Présentation de l'éditeur

The story of the founder of Buddhism is one of the world's great archetypal tales of spiritual awakening. He was born Siddhartha Gautama in the sixth century BCE, the son of a prince who ruled a small kingdom in what is now Nepal. Siddhartha led a sheltered existence until the age of twenty-nine, when he left his life of ease and set out to find a solution to the problem of suffering. For years he wandered as a homeless ascetic, practicing severe austerities that brought him to the brink of death but no nearer to his goal. He then abandoned asceticism for a "middle way." Sitting down under a tree, he vowed to remain there until he realized the truth. After a night of deep meditation, his Enlightenment came at dawn, and he was thereafter known as the Buddha, the "Awakened One."

A highly readable and inspiring historical account 25 mai 2000
Par gavin_f@bigfoot.com - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This is an excellent book. Much better for eg. than Paul Carus' Gospel of the Buddha, a perennial bestseller, though it hasn't sold much here. Don't be fooled by the low sales. Kohn manages to convey in extremely readable English, the poetry of the Buddha's life from what is evidently extensive research of the original sources. This is not a book about the Buddha's philosophy, though the when, how and what of his enlightenment is amply covered. It is primarily an account of his life, a biography, and in that, an excellent one. One gets a sense of his life, as also of the times in which he lived. The mythical contexts come alive in a way that one rarely sees, particularly the quaint world-space of the time. All the Buddha's major disciples and those with whom he had significant interactions are covered extensively. The most important thing about this book and what may be seen as it's only limitation is that it is not a scholarly work, but an introduction for the curious seeker.

Not a history book......but then again, it doesn't try to be 13 juin 2004
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
A wonderful account of The Buddha's earliest traditions that are deeply rooted in Hiduism. The book presents the story in a very straightforward path from prelife to death. Not an introduction to Buddhism itself but simply the stories surrounding the man who was its source. Highly recommended for anyone interested in the most ancient stories of The Buddha.

A life changing book for me 22 septembre 2012
Par P. G. Thornell - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
When I was 19, and this book was still called The Awakened One, I found it in a used book store in Boston. It was my entry point into the Buddhist practice I've continued now for 22 years. I've read several life stories of the Buddha over the years, but this is still my favorite. And being able to have it with me wherever I go on my Kindle is a joy.

Very good scholarly work, easy to read and informative 31 mars 2010

This is a short, well-written text that covers the major events of the Buddha's life. It's very informative and precise, but not pedantic.
Brilliant story of a man who broke through 20 septembre 2014
Par Charlie B Vermont - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Amazingly moving to read a story woven from the historical record of the Buddha's life. I hope it's well researched -I confess I haven't checked- but it tallies with everything else I've heard or read. I found Siddhartha Gautama's story incredibly moving. Remembering this book's retelling of the night of his enlightenment brings tears to my eyes as I write this. Part of Kohn's skill as a storyteller is that his book arcs subtly upward toward that moment, so that when it finally happens it feels both plausible and earth-shattering.

The power of this book is that it activates and hooks the passion we all have, no matter how much we rationalize it and try to be practical, to break through: to realize our greatest potential. This is the story of a man who did.
