About the Author
Translated by Ananda Maitreya; Foreword by Thich Nhat Hanh
Most Venerable Balangoda Ananda Maitreya Nayaka Thera (August 24, 1896 – July 18, 1998), a Sri Lankan scholar-monk, was a personality of Theravada Buddhism in the twentieth century. Through his meditations, he was believed to have achieved one of the highest level of spiritual development within the Sri Lankan sangha (Buddhist monastic order), though he always used to say that he has to learn more. He lived a modest life in a secluded monastery, however, so is little known outside his native country.
