Buddha and His Teachings
Buddha and His Teachings
Description
Back of the Book

Buddha and His Teachings is a unique presentation of the doctrine of not-self, the doctrine upon which the Dhamma was set rolling for more than 2,500 years ago. The author identifies misinterpretations of the Dhamma, that have lasted for 2000 years, to continue the work begun by his mentor Venerable Nanavira Thera, who became a cult figure after he wrote Clearing the Path.

This book provides the percipient reader an insight of the teachings of the Buddha, composed from Suttas and related texts, along with copious annotations for further study, and a glossary of Pali words used in the Dhamma — all written in a lucid style.

Dr Kingsley Heendeniya is well known for his regular writings on Dhamma. He devotes his time entirely to the study of the discourses of the Buddha.

Presently retired from the ministry of Health and Postgraduate Institute of Medicine, Sri Lanka, he was also a consultant in Health Services and Research to agencies such as WHO, UNICEE UNFPA and World Bank. He has travelled widely often leading international study groups. He lives with his wife in Sri Lanka.
