This is an absorbing work of fiction woven around the life of the Buddha, The Supremely Enlightened One. The well known episodes are dramatized vividly through imaginative visualization. The most outstanding quality of this work is that Prince Siddhattha and other personalities are vibrantly made alive. Though a work of fiction, it reads very much like authentically realistic presentation. Those who have been familiar only with the familiar aspects of the life of the Buddha, will find this refreshing aspect.
~ Singapore Buddhist Meditation Centre

Jayasena Jayakody’s PORTRAIT OF THE BUDDHA vividly describes the life and culture of Sinhala Buddhists.

The author’s observations are penetrating and his insight into the life around him is remarkably deep. Being a humanist nurtured in Buddhist cultural heritage, he views the life of the common man with a rare sensitivity.

PORTRAIT OF THE BUDDHA is not only a useful addition to Buddhist literature but also a powerful piece of creative writing. The book provides the reader with an understanding of the Buddha, His teachings and above all, one’s own self.
