Author(s): Thich Nhat Hanh
Drawn directly from Pali, Sanskrit, and Chinese sources, Old Path White Clouds is the beautiful, classic recounting of the life and teachings of Gautama Buddha over the course of eighty years. It is retold alternately through the eyes of Svasti, the buffalo boy who provided kusa grass for the Buddha's enlightenment cushion, and the Buddha himself. Thich Nhat Hanh's style captures the clarity and serenity of the Buddha's life. Old Path White Clouds is a gift book, a reference book, and an excellent read destined to become a classic of religious literature.
