This “Life of the Buddha” has been prepared for secondary school students. There are exercises with each story which teachers can elaborate on when it is used as a text book. However, while the stories are simple and brief, they do follow the scriptural tradition and so are of value for the general reader who wishes to learn about the Buddha’s life.
