The Feeling Buddha by David Brazier, Caroline Brazier
  

Synopsis

The Feeling Buddha by David Brazier, Caroline Brazier

This account explains how the Buddha's path of wisdom and loving kindness grew out of the challenges he encountered in life. It explores enlightenment, nirvana, and the Four Noble Truths, presenting a picture of the Buddha as a very human figure whose success lay not in his perfection, but in his method of positively utilizing the energy generated by personal suffering.
