HAAL MÉÉR UIT JEZELF!
This short introduction of the Life of the buddha, rendered as Part I of a two volume work, was compiled by the rev. Siridhamma when he was a novice monk in the Brickfields Buddhist Temple. After the stript had been completed. The venerable H. Gunaratna an mr. Lim Eng Chuan, went through the details and each gave suggestions and ideas which had since then, been incorporated and used to complete this valuable booklet.
This publication meets a long-felt need for a suitable text-book for Lower Secondary School standards that deals particularly with the period of earthly existence of the Buddha Although the account of the life in the book is set down very briefly, I believe that this presentation offers a good deal of material for the study of our great master’s life. Teachers of the dhamma classes in the various Buddhist Sunday Schools and even other religious insitutions may elaborate on certain lessons to their satisfaction in their classes, when this booklet is used as a textbook.
