        Vision of the Buddha – The Buddha and His Teachings        


Author: Ven. Narada Maha Thero

Compiled by: Ven. Weragoda Sarada Maha Thero

Everybody is keen to learn the essentials of Buddhism, through an easily read but authoritative book. The answer is, of course, late Ven. Narada Maha Thero’s “The Buddha and His Teachings”.  Until recently this book was available as a very ordinary publication, that did not appeal to the modern reader.  SBMC, has published this work on a very lavish scale under the title “Vision of the Buddha – The Buddha and His Teaching”.  This entirely new edition is illustrated with a series of very valuable murals from Buddhist Temples.  As a collection of Buddhist mural paintings alone, the work is of immense value.  This is a highly dependable work that could be referred to, whenever a question arises about the Life and the Teachings of the Buddha – the Enlightened One. This work is a reliable companion to every Buddhist and to every non-Buddhist with an inquiring mind. This work helped to promote Buddhist missionary work, world-wide. The mural paintings and photographs of ancient sculptures make this book a veritable collectors' item.

      Buddha’s Constant Companion – Venerable Ananda         

Author: Ven. Weragoda Sarada Maha Thero

  This work ranks high among the publications of the Singapore Buddhist Meditation Centre. In the hierarchy of Buddhist leaders, Ven. Ananda, is almost next to the Enlightened One. Ven. Ananda has been the unfailing companion of the Buddha, over a long period of his life. Such a spiritual friendship occurs very rarely indeed in the annals of religious history. Ven. Ananda’s life is extensively recorded in Buddhist scripture. His character is picturesque and is leavened by a humane attitude.This made him an appealing personality for people at a variety of levels.

All those variegated facts of Ven. Ananda’s sacred life are vividly recorded in this book. It is profusely illustrated with exquisite art works. The stories narrated in this book are quite absorbing.
