Sir Edwin Arnold has rendered in exquisite poetic form the story of the Buddha’s search, enlightenment, and teaching. First published in 1879, the book has become a classic and has been published in many editions and in many languages. Not only is it deeply philosophical in nature, but because of its poetic form and its narrative of the dramatic incidents in Siddhartha’s life, it is delightful and absorbing reading.
