Book Description

About the Book
"Seeking Nibbana in Sri Lanka is a finely crafted novel that succeeds both as a work of literature and as a profound reflection on the nature of Buddhist spiritual experience. In following the young Western monk Sumana into the Sri Lankan jungle to meet his teacher Aggachitta, we are drawn into a world of conflicting perceptions, in which sincerity and self-doubt, the mundane and the transcendent, are woven together into a poignant and moving tapestry of intersecting human lives." Stephen Batchelor, author of "Buddhism without Beliefs".
