Book Description
About the Book:

The importance of Pali Chronicles for reconstruction of history of Buddhism in Ceylon (Sri Lanka) is immense. The Chronicles like the Dipavamsa, Mahavamsa, Culavamsa, Mahabodhivamsa, Thupavamsa etc. are productions of Ceylonese poets. These are historical poems based on some historical events of Buddhist Community. In the present book, 'STATE OF BUDDHISM IN CEYLON(SRILANKA) as depicted in the Pali Chronicles," the author has thrown abundant light on the various aspects of Buddhism in Ceylon such as spread of Buddhism, royal patronage, monastic life and festivals and ceremonies in Ceylon. The author having taken up these issues and going deep into the original sources of Pail Chronicles has made commendable contribution in the field on history of Buddhist Culture and hope this book will render substantial help to the students and scholars in general.
