The Awakened One
By Sherab Chodzin Kohn. 153 pg., 6"x 9"paperback. The Buddha's life story is a universal tale of the awakening of consciousness. The founder of Buddhism led a sheltered life until the age of twenty-nine, when he set out on a journey of discovery. His goal was to overcome suffering and death—and he actually did so, in that moment under the Bodhi Tree when he became the Buddha, "The Awakened One."A blend of legend and history.
