Burning Questions

Preface

The following pages contain some almost complete lectures delivered by Rev. Bhikkhu Dhammapala during his Vas-season in our town. They are his answers to some of the most vital and burning questions of our modern times, questions of the deepest interest especially to Buddhist Students. Hence the Panadure Buddhist Students’ Union, under whose auspices these lectures were organised, gratefully accepted the offer of Mr. P. Robert Dias of Panadure, as sponsor and patron of this series, to have these talks printed and published. Our only regret is that the continuation of paper-control forbade us to publish the whole series. As condensation would have made the matter unnecessarily difficult, we thought it better to publish only three lectures in almost full length.

The discussions which followed were many times as interesting as the lectures themselves. We therefore express our hope that this booklet may be of service to study-circles, for it is through discussion and exchange of thoughts that a clearer understanding of the subject can he obtained.

According to the wish of the sponsor the proceeds of the sale will go partly to the furtherance of the All-Ceylon Buddhist Students’ Union. We are happy to express here once more our gratitude for his generous support.
