The Life of Buddha book cover

The Life of Buddha

Buddha means "The Enlightened One." The Buddha was born to bring peace to earth and to free humans from reincarnation and time.

Soumontha, nicknamed Link, was a novice monk for seven years at Phousi Temple in Luang Prabang. Here he tells the story of how the Buddha was born, became a monk, reached enlightenment, announced his religion, and reached nirvana. Soumontha shortened the story to make it fun to read and easy to learn for students and anyone else who wants to know about Buddha's history.
