'This book, which touches the heart as it challenges the mind and spirit, is indeed unique. Rather than recounting of dogma cramped within rigid explications, this book places the context of the Buddha's teaching in the proper perspective of his life. Here readers may see, through the Buddha's actual experiences as he wandered around the world, how he evolved the great and simple truths that have so immeasurably enriched the moral fabric of man's life. Written by one of the great French authorities on Buddhism...[it] gives Western readers true insight into what, for millions of people in widely differing ethnic groups, has become The Way. Combining the known facts of the Buddha's existence and the tenets of his teaching with the beautiful myths he has inspired, Percheron offers an exquisite selection from the vast Indian and Tibetan Buddhist literature, including sources unavailable to the general reader...'
