"The Gospel of Buddha" by American author Paul Carus was first published in 1894. This work soon became a worldwide bestseller, completely eclipsing the one previous attempt to popularise Buddhism in the West, Sir Edwin Arnold's " The Light of Asia ". Carus collected accounts of the life and teaching of the Buddha from many sources and fashioned a coherent and gripping narrative which would be understood by Americans as very much like a Christian "gospel". "The Gospel of Buddha" was quickly translated into Japanese and other Eastern languages, and was taken up by teachers in the Buddhist world.
