Buddha: A Story of Enlightenment by Deepak Chopra

I believe that this is the first in a series of 3 fictional novels that Deepak Chopra wrote, about 3 great Profits; Buddha, Jesus and Muhammad.  This was somewhat of collaboration between Deepak Chopra and his friend Shekhar Kapur, who together imagined the stories of Buddha’s life while on his path to enlightenment.

For me, the author provides a sense of life and culture which helped to make the story more real. And, he wrote about some of the events, from over 80 years of Buddha’s lifetime that would introduce one to Buddha and illustrate his journey from birth through his enlightenment. The author was able to present the ideas behind Buddhism in a simple language so that a novice can understand.
