What makes Buddhist teacher Kohn's book different from a work like E.J. Tho mas's The Life of the Buddha (1969) is his lucid way of combining the vario us early sources he relies on here. The major events in the life of the Bud dha from preexistence to his "utter extinction of final nirvana, parinirvan a" provide a framework into which Kohn fits many of the Buddha's teachings, which he presents without analysis. A Mahayana view of the Buddha marks Ko hn's work, as evidenced by a description of the Buddha's preexistence and h is superhuman powers, such as the ability to make others invisible. Though an index would have made the book more useful, it is a splendid combination of biography and instruction.
