Book DescriptionSiddhartha Gautama was born a wealthy prince. He gradually gave up worldly ways until, at age thirty-five, he attained supreme enlightenment and became the Buddha. The ancient story is beautifully retold in this unique edition, illustrated with stunning Asian-style paintings in full color, with each painting presenting a key stage in Siddhartha's life. In a novel touch that revives an old Asian tradition, the pages read top to bottom with the book bound at the top. An author's note at the end gives background information and is followed by suggestions on how to meditate from the Dalai Lama himself.
