Deepak Chopra brings the Buddha back to life in this gripping New York Times bestselling novel about 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 y those closest to him, Siddhartha abandons his palace and princely title. 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. Ultimately recognizing his inability to conquer his body and mind by sheer will, Siddhartha transcends his physical pain and achieves enlightenment.

Although we recognize Buddha today as an icon of peace and serenity, his life story was a tumultuous and spellbinding affair filled with love and sex, murder and loss, struggle and surrender. From the rocky terrain of the material world to the summit of the spiritual one, Buddha captivates and inspires—ultimately leading us closer to understanding the true nature of life and ourselves.

Deepak Chopra, M.D., is the author of more than eighty books translated into over forty-three languages, including numerousNew York Timesbestsellers in both fiction and nonfiction categories.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVED IT! I've started reading a lot about Buddhism and how to meditate etc. I really enjoyed this book. Maybe I've been reading to many books of a similar nature recently, but it was such a good story, inspirational, and you just felt good after reading it. I can honestly say this has become one of my favorite books of all time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from freeing! Great book! it was an easy read. it makes you about certain things in your life, choices, actions, decisions, behavior and makes you rethink about it all in a different perspective. Why do we do the things we do? because we want to or because society wants us to, or because we think or assume this is what society expects us to do. It was a great book!
