The Dhamma Man by Vilas Sarang

Siddharth Gautam; prince of Kapilavastu and heir to the throne; has everything. Yet he is dissatisfied. The fundamental problem of suffering; dukkha; bothers him. He leaves home; renouncing crown and family; and becomes a wandering seeker. Siddharth finds gurus to guide him; practises extreme asceticism-at one point nearly starving himself to death-and then rejects everything; for the knowledge he seeks constantly eludes him. He then meditates; and one epiphanic night; enlightenment comes to him; the startling insight into the human condition which makes him the Buddha. The Dhamma Man explores; sensitively and with great objectivity; Buddha as man-as son; husband and father. And even as Sarang tries to understand the effect Siddharth's renunciation of the world had on his family; he celebrates Buddha; who not only launched a religion but has continued relevance today; more than two millennia after his death. Richly imagined and refreshingly original; The Dhamma Man is a whole new way to read the story of Buddha.
