The Story of Buddha
An online book of the story and teachings of Buddha.

Buddha passed away 2500 years ago in a small village in India. But his teaching of love and wisdom have never died. His disciples who lived with him passed on his teachings to others. And they in turn taught them to still others. In this way they have reached us today

Everyone, in every country, no matter what he or she believes, can learn from these teachings of the compassionate Buddha. By following them properly, we can get rid of all selfishness, hatred and greed. We can conquer all fear and reach the same peace and understanding that the Prince Siddhartha found under the Tree of Enlightenment. In the same way that he did, we can each become a Buddha, and Awakened one. We can bring the same happiness to others that he did.
