Old Path White Clouds presents the life and teachers of Gautama Buddha. Drawn directly from 24 Pali, Sanskrit, and Chinese Sources, and retold by Thich Nhat Hanh in his inimitably beautiful style, this book traces the Buddha's life slowly and gently over the course of 80 years, partly through the eyes of Svatsi, the buffalo boy, and partly through the eyes of Buddha himself. Old Path White Clouds is destined to become a classic of religious literature.
Thich Nhat Hanh is a Vietnamese Buddhist mink. His life long efforts to generate peace and reconciliation moved Martin Luther King, Jr to nominate him for the Nobel Peace Prize in 1967. He is the founder of Van Hanh Buddhist University in Saigon, and has taught at Columbia University and the Sorbonne. He is the author of Being Peace, The Miracle of Mindfulness, Peace is Every Step, and 75 other books.
