An End to Suffering: The Buddha in the World (Paperback)Pankaj Mishra (author)
Paperback Published: 07/10/2005
- Not available
An accomplished history of the Buddha, "An End to Suffering" is also a deeply personal story - the story of Pankaj Mishra's search for meaning, for truth and peace in the modern world and, specifically, in post-colonial, independent India. As he describes his travels to unearth the origins of the Buddha, Mishra offers glimpses into his own quest for enlightenment, from childhood to September 11, from family background to friends met and made, from lessons learned to achievements as a writer. Through this, Mishra reveals the parallels between his time and the Buddha's, between their respective journeys - and that of their country - in search of progress and reconciliation.
