Best book on the life of the historical Buddha?
Buddhism is one of the world's oldest religions. Founded by Siddhartha Gautama, later known as the Buddha, circa the 5th century BCE , Buddhism outlines a path of personal spiritual enrichment through meditation and insight. Following in the Buddha's footsteps, Buddhists seek to reach nirvana, or enlightenment, a state of transcendence free from suffering, desire and the cycle of death and rebirth. Unlike Christianity or Islam, Buddhism does not have one central text that sums up the religion's basic tenets. What people call "Buddhism" today is really a collection of different philosophies and schools of thought, ranging from Zen to Mahayana to Theravada. If you're seeking to explore Buddhism more deeply, here are 12 books that both practitioners and religious seekers can use to learn more about this ancient tradition. Are there any books that we missed?

Buddha life and his teaching (Vipassana) in hindi
Sometimes to the point of obsession. I believe that humans, by nature, crave powerful reminders that speak to the soul. They tell us who we truly are. Not as separate individual selves, but as extensions of a whole, divine existence. All of them had a significant impact on my journey. Unlike so many texts that come off as esoteric or doctrine-like, these are comparatively simple to read and digest. This book is a gem of spiritually-empowering knowledge and practical business expertise.
