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.

This is a letter from the young Vietnamese man I met when another member of Buddhist Contemplative Care Tasmania I were going out to Pontville in 2013. We have written to each other for over two years now. I have encouraged him in his practice and to remain calm and strong. He has and look how well he is doing. He has practised strong determination, what the Buddha called Adhiṭṭhāna which is one of the Paramis. Already he is practising to be a Buddha.

Tôi sửng sốt khi nhận được giấy mời từ văn phòng Liên hiệp quốc tại Geneva, Thụy Sỹ - Invitation for releasing “T. T. Weapon book at UN Geneve”. Tôi giật thót mình và sợ rằng bị bom thư hay bị bọn khủng bố gửi gì đó vì thấy có từ weapon, tức là vũ khí. Tôi không mở 2 file đi kèm vì tin rằng loại thư này đến hòm thư của mỗi chúng ta rất nhiều mỗi ngày.

Amitabha Buddha’s name chanting is an easy method of cultivation in which beliefs are difficult to have, especially in this age of information technology when people care more about material comfort than the spiritual life. However, as in the Buddha’s teachings: Buddhahood is a nature of mind and it’s the mind that possesses the Buddhahood, ringing about enlightenment. Therefore, as Buddhists, we have to believe in Buddha’s teachings. The Flower Adornment Sutra stated: “Beliefs are the mother of all the good merits.”. No other merits are greater than making a vow to be reborn in the Pure Land and to become a Buddha. On the occasion of this year’s retreat, we would like to briefly tell you about an old lady having a belief in Amitabha Buddha’s name chanting

Buddhist priest Alan Piercey is a hospital chaplain in Burnie, a fireman with his local brigade in Penguin and a one-time purveyor of chocolate. Media player: "Space" to play, "M" to mute, "left" and "right" to seek. He is known to the people on the North West coast by a number of different names, the most often used borrowed from a popular animated movie. "My ordained name is Venerable Shih Jingang (pronounced Cher Gin Gun)," he said. "Most people around the North West Regional Hospital in Burnie just know me as Sifu. "And if you ask any five-year-old, they'll know exactly who Sifu is: a character from Kung Fu Panda. I believe it's a cartoon."

Thank you. Well, good morning. Giving all praise and honor to God. It is wonderful to be back with you here. I want to thank our co-chairs, Bob and Roger. These two don’t always agree in the Senate, but in coming together and uniting us all in prayer, they embody the spirit of our gathering today.
