Paticca Samuppada Model Offers a Superb Approach to Analyze Universal Phenomena

I am a scholar of Pali and Theravada Buddhism generally, and my name “came up” in a recent article by Prof. Shelton Gunaratne on your website.

I wanted to let Prof. Gunaratne know that I’ve actually written a “sequel” article on the particular issue that interested him (the mis-translation of the 12 links of pa?icca-samuppada):

There are many article on that blog concerning Theravada Buddhism, but only a few that deal with Sri Lanka specifically.

I think that many people at Lankaweb would enjoy taking a close look at the illustration to this short article, on stone inscriptions in Sri Lanka:

(Click on the image to “zoom in” and see detail).

A few reflections on Sri Lanka (and why I spent more time in Laos than Sri Lanka) are also gathered here:

You will find a list of my formal publications, here:

Thanks for your time, and I hope that you will pass on my best wishes to Prof. Sheldon Gunaratne.

By sheer coincidence, I have actually met and spoken to the other scholar whom he mentions in his article (namely, Suwanda Sugunasiri) when we were both living in Canada more than 10 years ago.
