Gautama Buddha: The Lord of Wisdom

Rohini Chowdhury (Author) Puffin lives series

Even though he was one of the most influential men who ever walked the earth, very little is known about the life of Siddhartha Gautama, the man we call the Buddha. His teachings were followed for 1,500 years in India, and became the guiding principles of life for both rich and poor, high born and lower caste. Today, the religion he founded is followed all over the world.
