Praise

“[This work] is not simply a window into another culture; it is an aesthetic experience that moves the reader to an enhanced understanding of the life of the Buddha.”—The Khyentse Foundation Committee Awarding the Prize for Outstanding Translation

“A superb contribution to Buddhist Studies, Lewis and Tuladhar have notonly translated from the Newari poetic vernacular an extraordinarily profound text by an outstanding figure in twentieth-century Nepali history, but in the process they have also managed to introduce many of the rich textures of lay Newari Buddhist culture. This is a perfect selection for a course on biographies of the Buddha or for Himalayan religious studies.”—John Clifford Holt, William R. Kenan Jr. Professor of Humanities in Religion and Asian Studies, Bowdoin College
