Thus We Heard: Recollections of the Life of the Buddha

thusRev. Kusala made a page on this new book which sounds really interesting for all you Buddhist scholars out there. It’s a biography, some of the Buddha’s teachings, and a fictional recreation by a monk and a lay minister who also is a doctorate of Dharma.

EXCERPT from the forward: “Thus We Heard: Recollections of the Life of Buddha became an amalgam of three kinds of books: a fully-researched biography of the Buddha, a collection of his important Dhamma messages, and a historical novel that “might have happened,” but we’ll never know for sure.
