Days of Prince Siddharta
A Buddha's Life in Quatrains
About the Book
What we understand today as Buddhism, actually began as an off spring of Hinduism in the great Indus Valley. The founder of this great religion is of course our insightful prince, Gautama Siddhartha, He is the focus of this brief poetic biography. An epic saga of persistence, inspiration and mysticism. By no means is it a simple task to provide a precise historical account of the life of Prince Siddhartha, since no actual journalistic account has been accurately documented. As such, there is no definite history of Siddhartha…only time trusted “biography.” Exact details and all precise accounts are moot. He was simply born! He simply lived. He simply transformed.
