by Ajahn Amaro 2004 English Audio, Readings The Pilgrim Kamanita - A Legendary Romance

The Pilgrim Kamanita is about the journey of Kamanita, an Indian merchant’s son, from earthly prosperity and youthful romance, to his meeting with a unfamiliar monk, who actually is Gotama Buddha. The Pilgrim Kamanita was published in German in 1906 by Karl Gjellerup. The print version was edited and published by Ajahn Amaro, and offered in dedication when the Amaravati Temple was formally opened in 1999. This is the audiobook version read by Ajahn Amaro; it was originally created principally for his blind mother so that she could enjoy the story too.
