We have all seen images of the Buddha, legs crossed, eyes lowered. Decisive energy is in the unshakeable poise of his posture, ineffable wisdom and fathomless compassion in his half smile. This ancient image, 2500 years old, has become the archetypal symbol of the spiritual quest. When nothing seems to make sense any more, it is his face that looks out at us with the assurance that there is another way. But who was the man who became the Buddha? What is his story and how does it relate to us? "Warrior of Peace" is a poetic and rousing retelling of the Buddha's life. Bringing together the strands of historical fact, traditional oral legend and symbolic myth, Jinananda shows us how the Buddha's dramatic story is a mirror of our own search for meaning. Beyond fairy tale or fantasy, a true story resonates with the deepest longings of the human heart and inspires us on our journey of awakening.
