Author: : Ven. Weragoda Sarada Maha Thero

Of the suttas (discourses) of the Supremely Enlightened One, Maha Mangala Sutta, is perhaps the foremost in terms of popularity among the masses.

The present book published in a large format, presents a fully illustrated version of this discourse. Over and above the 38 blessings, the preliminary events to the discourse are also illustrated. An illustrated version of the Sinhala poetic work Lovada Sangarava (book of worldly welfare) is printed here, as the second segment of the book. The Pali text and English translation of Maha Mangala Sutta, Pali prose order and the translation of expression and the list of 38 blessings are appended to the end of the book.

Buddhist Tales for Young and Old Volume 1 – Stories 1-50


Interpreted by Kurunegoda Piyatissa Maha Thero

Stories told by Todd Anderson

Illustrated by John Patterson


This is the first volume of a series of stories, culled mostly from the Jataka stories (birth tales of the Buddha). Although the tales are for both the young and old, the presentation is emphatically oriented towards the young. The style of the illustrations has a special appeal to young ones. The way the stories are narrated is conducive to delightful absorption.

A special effort has been made to underline the morals implicit in each story. At the end of the book, the moral in each story is listed, indicating the number of the story and the page where each moral lesson is found.

                     Facets of Buddhist Thought                     


Author: Prof. K.N. Jayatilleke

This is a rare philosophical work that makes a profound enquiry into some of the main concepts of Buddhism. The book starts with an examination of the Buddhist conception of the universe. The author presents his views on such subjects as these, primarily on the evidence of the Tripitaka. The work examines the Buddhist attitude to God, The Buddhist attitude to revelation, The Buddhist concept of matter and the material world and the Buddhist analysis of mind. The approach of this book to the main concepts of Buddhism is scholarly. In consequence this work is extremely profitable to researchers, universities and other institutions of higher education.
