“The Tathagatha… is the originator of the path unarisen before, the producer of the path unproduced before, the declarer of the path undeclared before. He is the knower of the path, the discoverer of the path, the one skilled in the path. And his disciplines now dwell following that path and become possessed of it afterwards.”
~ The Buddha

The Life of the Buddha: Acording to the Pali Canon

Venerable Bhikkhu Nanamoli

This book pieces together the chronological story of the Buddha’s life strictly from the standpoint of the Pali Cannon.  More recent translations of the text can be found individually, but this is the most comprehensive anthology of those relating to the Buddha’s path to enlightenment and his long life teaching the Dhamma.
