The first selection of the Patheos Book Club is Deepak Chopra's Buddha: A Story of Enlightenment. Although we recognize Buddha today as an icon of peace and serenity, his life story was a tumultuous and spellbinding affair filled with love and sex, murder and loss, struggle and surrender. From the rocky terrain of the material world to the summit of the spiritual one, Buddha captivates and inspires-ultimately leading us closer to understanding the true nature of life and our selves. Chopra, the preeminent voice of Eastern philosophy in the West, now offers his remarkable insights on the inspiring life of one of the world's most important ﬁgures -- the Buddha.
This re-imagining of the Buddha's life presents a new form of teaching from the beloved Chopra, who shows how the iconic journey of the prince who became the Buddha has changed the world forever, and how the lessons he taught continue to inﬂuence every corner of the world.
