    This is a sightly heavy book, both in terms of size as well as content and can be used by more intent students. Written by Thich Nhat Hanh , Old Path White Clouds presents the life and teachings of Gautama Buddha. Drawn directly from 24 Pali, Sanskrit and Chinese sources and retold by Thich Nhat Hanh in his inimitably beautiful style, this book traces the Buddha's life slowly and gently over the course of 80 years, partly through the eyes of Svasti, the buffalo boy and partly through the eyes of the Buddha himself.
