This book contains Paul Carus's 1894 work, "The Gospel of Buddha". Modeled on the New Testament, it recounts Buddha's life and teachings in the form of parables. It was an instrumental tool used by many Asian sects to introduce Buddhism to the west in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Contents include: "The Disciple Speaks", "Samsara And Nirvana", "Truth, The Savior", "The Enlightenment", "The Ties Of Life", "The Three Woes", "The Bodhisattvas Renunciation", "King Bimbisara", "The Bodhisattva's Search", "Uruvela, Place Of Mortification", "Mara, The Evil One", "Enlightenment", et cetera. Many vintage books such as this had been becoming increasingly rare or expensive. This volume is now republished in a readily available, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction.
