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 Buddha’s ethical teachings, these essential points of the eightfold path aim at promoting as well as perfecting the three heads of Buddhist training and discipline, namely (a) Ethical Conduct (b) Mental Discipline and (c) Wisdom. According to the capacity of each individual harmoniously cultivated, these points are all linked together and each helps the cultivation of the others.

Buddhism is not a religion for men just to follow but to learn, to understand, to practise, to gain experience. When men come to know the Buddha’s teaching and perhaps practise it to some extent, sometimes they wish to make the Dhamma their direction in life or their guide through life. At that time, their thoughts turn to become a Buddhist.

Mindfulness LLC, Mira Loma High School, ILC, SJTA, SJUSD, California Teachers Association, USA. W. Edward Bureau, Ph.D., Associate Clinical Professor (Retired), Drexel University, Philadelphia, PA, USA Residence in Cochranville, PA, USA Introduction Sustainable peace anchors itself in mindfulness of the present, the people, and the microcosms in which we exist. Rather than existing as a static state, the peace is organic and dynamic, flowing itself around the vagaries of “unpeacefulness.” Thus, being a mindful leader begins with the practice of the Five Mindfulness Trainings (Five Precepts) and the N
