About The Author

Prof. Shrikant Prasoon is a great educationist. He is a writer as well as a great poet. He has retired as the Reader in English from L.N.D.College, Motihari. He has been devoting much of his time in reading and writing. He has a deep interest in spirituality and other related topics.

Having built up a treasure house of inspiring thoughts, he has been writing on varied topics. Some of his published works include 'Famous Doctors' in English and collection of poems 'Sandhi Sthal' in Hindi.


It's widely claimed that Buddhism is not a religion, it's a way of life, a social philosophy etc. But I have always been firmly convinced that Buddhism is a True Religion. It offers all that is needed for a human to be truly religious and spiritual, and for one's salvation, Nirvana. We don't need to possess Buddhism- Buddhism possesses all.

Does it make any difference then, by what name we refer to the teachings of Buddha? Not at all! It is not the name, but the teachings that will carve out a refined, cultured, and virtuous person out of us, capable of making the world a better place for all to live in; capable of transforming inner and outer negativities, including anger, hatred and lust.

Without being a Buddhist, I feel I'm closer to Buddha and have followed his teaching more closely since my childhood. Now, I'm all the more convinced that for being a true disciple of Buddha one need not become a Buddhist.

The basic purpose behind this book- Knowing Buddha: His Life and Teaching- is to make the teachings of the Enlightened one easily available for the knowledge and benefit of the lay person in simple language without going into deep analysis and controversial discussions. Its more important to know what the Buddha said, which is what's really beneficial for modern humans to live in peace and happiness, without unwanted sufffering.
