"The Buddha was as mortal as you and I, yet he attained enlightenment and was raised to the rank of an immortal. The miracle is that he got there following a heart as human as yours and mine, and just as vulnerable." -- from the Introduction. Bestselling author Deepak Chopra brings the Buddha back to life in this gripping account of the young prince who abandoned his inheritance to discover his true calling. This iconic journey changed the world forever, and the truths revealed continue to influence every corner of the globe today. A young man in line for the throne is trapped in his father's kingdom and yearns for the outside world. Betrayed by those closest to him, Siddhartha abandons his palace and princely title. Finally alone and face-to-face with his demons, he becomes a wandering monk and embarks on a spiritual fast that carries him to the brink of death.

Where did we come from ? We come from out of the past. this life is the result of the past life,before this life. We come out of the things we have done before ,out of the past labours unfinished .

This CD set has seen better days. Lots of skipping due to scratches. Think I will try the book version instead.

I never expected fiction by Chopra to be this good. Excellent as a story, excellent as the Buddha's story.
