The Story of the Buddha

Lecture no. 4 from the course: Buddhism

 The Story of the Buddha

Taught by Professor Malcolm David Eckel | 31 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Philosophy & Religion Courses

The Buddha was a real person who was born into a royal family, had a spiritual awakening and lived to be about 80. But the actual facts of Siddhartha Gautama's life cannot explain his impact on his followers. We must examine the stories that Buddhists tell about the Buddha, including those of his previous lives.
