E.H. Johnston (Author of Buddhacarita or Acts of the Buddha by Asvaghosa)

The Acts of the Buddha are essential reading for anyone who wants to understand Buddhism; and this is a wonderful translation! I ordered this book because it is used as a textbook for my Buddhism class. After reading it, I understand much more about the culture and religion, as well as appreciate the artistic poeticism that is behind the story of the Buddha’s life.
