THE BUDDHIST PUBLICATION SOCIETY * Founded in Sri Lanka in 1958, the BPS is a government-approved charity dedicated to making known the Teaching of the Buddha, which has a vital message for people of all creeds. BPS publications represent the standpoint of Theravada Buddhism, the oldest living Buddhist tradition, whose Pali Canon gives us the most authentic account of what the historical Buddha himself actually taught. * Since its founding, the BPS has published a wide variety of books and booklets covering a great range of topics. Always authentic, lucid and reliable, BPS publications present Buddhism as it truly is_a dynamic force which has influenced receptive minds for the past 2500 years and which meets the challenges of modern life with insights as valid today as they were when first proclaimed. * Ordering information, an order form, and an enrolment form for associate membership in the BPS will be found at the back of this catalogue. * BPS largely operates through your donations and support by the purchase of our books. It is the generosity of our members and well-wishers that enables us to continue our important work. We especially appreciate advance contributions towards the publication of planned books, announced in this catalogue and in our newsletters. * Quality manuscripts pertaining to the Theravada Buddhist tradition will be welcomed and considered for any of our formats: books, Wheel booklets or Bodhi Leaves. Prospective authors may write to the Editor, including a one-page resume of the proposed work. * When in Kandy come visit us. Our spacious headquarters features a large bookshop, a Buddhist library, and a small meditation room. Our friendly staff will be glad to meet you and assist you with your needs. BPS is located on the road running alongside the lovely Kandy Lake, about half a mile past the Temple of the Sacred Tooth. The bookshop is open Monday to Friday, 9. a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturday, 9 a.m. to 12 noon. 54, Sangharaja Mawatha * P.O.
