A Living Message
The scientist has brought the external world under his sway, and seems to promise that he can turn this world into a paradise. But humans cannot yet control their minds, despite all the achievements of science. The Buddha, however, was concerned with beings rather than with inanimate nature. His sole object was to unravel the mystery of existence and free beings from suffering through teaching them how to understand and control their minds. This booklet is a concise introduction to the Buddha and his teaching written by the renowned monk, Venerable Piyadassi Thera.
