Publisher's Synopsis
A great number of works have been consulted in the preparation of this book. Primary were three traditional sources: the Pali canon, the Lalitavistara Sutra and the Buddhacarita by Ashvagosha. Kohn has created a simple and beautiful retelling of one of the world's great spiritual biographies for a contemporary audience. A labor of love from a disciple of Chogyam Trungpa.

Reviews
"But for a self-professed 'retelling,' the language, tone, and composition of The Awakened One seem anything but modern, retaining a very stilted and awkward veneer."       ~Tricycle Magazine
