Novelizations of the Buddha’s life


There are several fictional accounts of the Buddha’s life, including The Lady of the Lotus, by William Barrett, which tells Siddhartha’s story from his wife Yasodhara’s point of view; The Way of Siddhartha, by David and Indrani Kalupahana, a novelization of the Buddha’s life by a Buddhist scholar and his wife; and Old Path, White Clouds, by Thich Nhat Hanh, another novelization by a renowned Vietnamese Buddhist monk, which has a more devotional tone.
