Buddhism: a Living Message

By:  Ven. Piyadassi Thera

The scientist has brought the external world under his sway, and seems to promise that he can turn this world into a paradise. But man cannot yet control his mind, despite all the achievements of science. The Buddha, however, was concerned with beings rather than with inanimate nature. His sole object was to unravel the mystery of existence and free beings from suffering through teaching them how to understand and control their minds.

This booklet is a concise introduction to the Buddha and his teaching written by the renowned preacher monk, Venerable Piyadassi Thera of Vajiraramaya Temple, Colombo, Sri Lanka (then Ceylon).
