This is a translation of a German work Budha, sien Leben, sein lehre, sein Gemeinde by Prof. Hermann Oldenberg. The original had attracted the attention of European scholars and the name of Oldenberg is a sufficient guarantee of the value of its contents. The distinguished author has in this work demolished the sceptical theory of a solar Buddha put forward by M. Senart. He has sifted the legendary elements of Buddhist tradition and has given the reliable residuum of facts concerning Buddha's life: he has examined the original teaching of Buddha.
