From the translator ….

 

It is my great pleasure being able to present a “Short Dhamma Story” for children. I have translated “Punchi Bana Katha” which was written in Sinhalese by the Venerable Welewatte Gunaratana Thero.  My main object of this noble work is to develop children’s Dhamma knowledge and moral education.

 

Most Venerable B. Sri Saranankara Adhikarana (Judiciary) Nayaka Maha Thera gave me his fullest support and encouraged me in my present work.  So my respectful and sincere heartfelt thanks go to him.  My very special thanks also goes to the President, Mr. G. Mervyn Weerasena and all members of the Siri Jayanti Association who pursed on my humble attempt. My special thanks goes to Venerable Welewatte Gunaratana Thero who gave me a proper consent to translate into English his Sinhalese book (Punci Bana Katha).

 

My sincere and grateful thanks are due to Ms. Lolla Munesinghe and Mr. A.K. Nelson who guided me well to complete my work without any failure.  I must remember the name, Sister Mallika Rajapakse who did the proof reading for the whole book.  I also wish to thank Ven. Diyakiritte Ananda Thero for designing the book cover and other story drawings.

 

May all merits that I accrue through this noble work be upon all devotees of the Sri Lanka Buddhist Temple (Siri Jayanti Association) who provided food and shelter during my pursuing for their success.   Last but not least, my special thanks are due to Mr. Karunarathne and Mrs. K. Weliwatta who have always assisted me in my religious services in Sri Lanka.

 

“Sabbadanam Dhammadanam Jinati”

The gift of truth (Dhamma) excels all other gifts.

The Deutsche Buddhistische Ordensgemeinschaft (DBO) formally dissociates itself from the protests against the Dalai Lama, which are being staged worldwide, and also in Frankfurt (Main). The DBO remains of the conviction that opinions among Buddhists should be expressed in a peaceful, respectful, truthful and reasonable manner. The DBO is very concerned about the protesters’ aggressive, misleading and unethical behaviour and the false image being presented by them to the public. The DBO emphasizes that the protesters belonging to the New Kadampa Tradition (NKT) are no Buddhist monks and nuns according to the monastic rules of the Buddha and that their behaviour in public represents neither the Buddha nor his teachings (Dharma) nor the Buddhist community (Sangha).

The Pope, who managed to get the United Nations "International Year for Tolerance" off to a good start with the launch of his book, 'Crossing the Threshold of Hope' - Johnathan Cape, London, has demonstrated his abysmal ignorance and lack of understanding of Buddhism. Although he, with reservations, expresses guarded approval of Judaism, Hinduism and Islam, he considers Buddhism beyond the pale. He trots out the usual cliches about Buddhism being "negative" and pessimistic. What really worries him is the appeal Buddhism has to the 'Western' mind, especially to Catholics who see in Buddhist meditation techniques something that has been lost from the contemplative tradition of early Christianity. He provides no logical arguments against Buddhism but resorts to dogma to prove his point.
