For an enjoyable and inspiring series of talks about the actual life of the Buddha as found in the suttas, listen to Stephen Batchelor’s eight talks given at Spirit Rock Meditation Center on The Life and Death of Siddhattha Gotama:

Meditation: http://www.dharmaseed.org/teacher/169/talk/347/
Renunciation: http://www.dharmaseed.org/teacher/169/talk/348/
Awaking: http://www.dharmaseed.org/teacher/169/talk/349/
The First and Second Sermons: http://www.dharmaseed.org/teacher/169/talk/350/
From Deer Park to Jeta’s Grove: http://www.dharmaseed.org/teacher/169/talk/351/
Self and Society: http://www.dharmaseed.org/teacher/169/talk/352/
Exile: http://www.dharmaseed.org/teacher/169/talk/353/
Death : http://www.dharmaseed.org/teacher/169/talk/354/

These are really very good, worth spending with, no matter what else one might think of Batchelor.
This being is bound to samsara, kamma is his means for going beyond.
